NBA Comparison: Nikola Vucivic

Strengths: Very high basketball IQ, This is his greatest strength. Strong personality. A team player. Has a great work ethic ... Tremendous length ... Can really shoot the ball ... Hard worker ... He was first introduced to real professional training – strength and conditioning as well as basketball workouts in September of 2013 and has shown tremendous improvement in his body ... Possesses a big wingpan ... Considering the fact that he competes in the Adriatic league, where most players are older than he is, and also that he's an average athlete, he uses his basketball IQ to succeed... Nikola understands the game really well. Furthermore he is able to follow and execute coach’s instructions. Shows a winning attitude, competes hard in games and practices ... A self starter, doesn't need to constantly be pushed to get the most of his abilties ... Well liked by teammates, outgoing, strong character, doesn't drink or smoke ... Young player, born in February of 1995 ...

Weaknesses: An average athlete lacking great speed and leaping ability ... Foot speed is a big liability. He may struggle to stay in front of NBA athletes at the center position ... Needs to improve as a post player, gain strength and develop a repertoire of back to the basket moves ... Defense is a real weakness at this point due to lack of lateral speed and lack of strength. His length is a big plus, but he'll need to continue to work on becoming stronger and learn to anticipate in order to overcome his lack of quickness ... Despite being a younger guy, his upside appears limited by his lack of explosiveness and foot speed ...

Notes:
Impressed at the 2014 Nike Hoop Summit with his outside shooting ...
