NBA Comparison: N/A

Strenghts: Bojan Bogdanovic is a versatile player who can score in lots of different ways. He has a good combination of height and body frame that should allow him to compete with NBA small forwards physically … He can attack the rim effectively with his quick first step, which allows him to beat his immediate defender quite easily … His mid-range game is a continuous threat because he has a good pull up jumper with confidence … He has NBA range on his 3-point shot, and is becoming more adept at putting the ball on the floor and getting to the basket …

Weaknesses: He’s an average athlete by NBA standards and he lacks lateral quickness … For these reasons he could struggle against NBA SG and SF on the defensive side … Even if he has a complete offensive game he doesn’t excel in any specific area, limiting his effectiveness for the NBA … Furthermore he is 22, so his upside is limited compared to other players …

Overall: Bogdanovic, during the 2010/2011 Euroleague season averaged 18 points, with a career high of 28 against Barcelona, showing his ability as a complete and versatile scorer … His athletic shortcomings and his recent signing with Fenerbache Istanbul has effectively withdrawn his consideration from the first round, but he’s still an intriguing pick as a second rounder …
