NBA Comparison:

Strengths: A combo guard with versatility to play multiple positions … Very explosive athlete … A beast physically, one of the most athletic guards to ever came from Brazil … An intriguing prospect considering he can play PG using his ball handling skills and solid vision of the floor … Danilo has a decent outside shot and is a good passer who can find the open man … Solid in pick and roll … Ambidextrous, excellent use of both hands, which gives his point guard chances greater intrigue … Very productive playing for a high level team in solid Brazilian league … Very good one on one player … Has an ultra explosive first step … A leaper who can finish plays with dunks … Possesses great body control, an NBA type body, with great strength for a guy his age … Also has long arms and great hands … A great defender, hard to beat in 1 x 1 situation … Offers help on rebounds and great timing for blocked shots … He generates a lot of fast break situations … He can defend smaller players as well as taller ones … Very aggressive type of player, attacks the basket to finish or to pass and creates space for his teammates … Has a great attitude. An unselfish, winning type of player, with good mentality and a hard worker …

Weaknesses:
Not a true point guard … More of a combo, scoring guard and a little undersized at 6-4/6-5 … Still must learn to make better decisions, particularly as a point guard … Seems to be too anxious sometimes. Must mature and allow the game to come to him, instead of trying to force the action … Needs to improve his shooting % and learn to stay out of  foul trouble … Lacks great experience and exposure … Shot takes a little time to get off, could work on having a crisper, faster release …

Outlook: Some around Latin American basketball feel that he is a first round talent … One of the most promising guards to come out of Brazil in a number of years … He exploded this season in Brazil finishing the playoffs averaging 20 pts per game … While fellow countryman George Lucas de Paula has received more hype, insiders in Brazil feel that Fuzaro is the superior prospect …

Notes: Full Name: "Danilo Fuzaro Siqueira" … Possesses an Italian passport … Scheduled to participate at this year’s adidas Eurocamp …
