NBA Comparison: Raul Lopez/Marcelinho Huertas

Strengths: Has amazing speed with the ball in his hands in transition and a really quick first step ... He has remarkable ball handling skills, that give him the ability to change speed and direction quite easily … He’s excellent in the pick and roll, with a great instinct to find teammates in drive and dish situations … He shows a great ability to exploit the screen to attack the basket with great intensity and effectiveness, with ability to get to the rim or to use his floater ... On the defensive side he’s really intense with the ability to put pressure on the ball with his excellent lateral speed and quick hands ... At the age of 21 there are few players in Europe playing with the same confidence and maturity at a high level ... Despite the lack of size he has a solid frame, especially in the upper body …

Weaknesses: With a height of 6’2” in shoes and a 6’2” wingspan he lacks optimum length …from an athletic standpoint he has just average leaping abilities ... His perimeter shooting lacks consistency, especially in the midrange area when he's forced to use the pull-up jumper from the dribble … He also needs to work on his 3 point shot in catch and shoot situations. His playmaking skills needs to be developed, in particular decision making, since he tends to over dribble and look for the highlight play ... On the defensive side his great intensity combined with the lack of maturity leads sometimes to early foul troubles against more experienced opponents.

Notes: He was in the world roster of 2011 Hoop Signed and signed with Lagun Aro in ACB the same summer. After a 2012/2013 ACB season when he closed with 9 points and 3 assists per game, he was the MVP of 2013 Adidas Eurocamp in Treviso. He’ll be probably spending at least a couple of season at a high European level before leaving for USA.
