NBA Comparison: Nando De Colo/Josè Calderon

Strengths: Good height for the position, he’s an underrated athlete … Great leadership and basketball IQ. He has good playmaking skills and natural instincts as a passer … Pushes the ball in transition effectively and attacks the basket with confidence, often finding teammates when the defense collapses on him … Strong defensive work ethic, with good instincts and quick hands. He’s a master of  intangibles … Often has a great influence on games without remarkable stats … Great experience despite young age …

Weaknesses: Though crafty, his athleticism is below average by NBA standards… He could suffer defensively due to his lack of lateral quickness … Poor perimeter shooter that limits his offensive effectiveness … His mid-range game is lacking … Needs to bulk up …

Notes: Last summer he won a gold medal at the U20 European Championship, he’s currently playing with UCAM Murcia in ACB (Spanish league, 8 pts, 2 rb, 2.5 assists this year).

Davide Bortoluzzi 5/5/12

Strengths: A pass first point guard with great court vision … Has good height for a point guard at a legit 6-foot-3…Very good ball handler with both his right and left hand and likes using a behind the back dribble when leading an up tempo offense and a crossover on half court sets … Has the uncanny ability to make the spectacular/ flashy pass … Has great court vision and is creative in the way he sets his teammates up with alley oops and bounce passes … Can go to the hole on either side and is always looking to set up a teammate for an easy score … A spot up shooter with good form that can extend all the way to the three point line … While he can play in half court sets, he is better suited in an up tempo offense … Has been exposed to the best competition in Europe at a young age playing in the First Division Spanish league and leading the Spanish European U-20 team to a 3rd place finish, while being a year younger than most of the competition …

Weaknesses: While he does uzilize a a crossover, he does not possess a great go-to move to create offense for himself … Despite having great form in his shot, the statistical results need to be more consistent … Has not demonstrated that  he has a mid-range game … Possesses average speed and is does not have good leaping ability … While he can dribble well with both hands, he has a high dribbling style which makes him more prone in being picked … Needs to add some strength to his body …
