NBA Comparison: Zarko Cabarkapa/Kyle Singler

Strengths: He has tremendous size and length (wingspan) for the wing position, even by NBA standards … He also has worked a lot on his body, putting on some muscle over last couple years … His game is developing, he’s showing the ability to attack the basket, using change of speed and direction effectively … He’s able to use his size and wingspan to post up smaller opponents … In spot situations he’s quite effective, also from behind the three point line … Offensively he’s able to make a solid contribution, he has nice handle and solid passing skills, involving teammates when the defense collapses on him … With his wingspan he’s a solid threat in the passing lanes, also due to his instincts … He’s able to use his height on the boards, as a solid rebounder for his position … Overall he can be considered a versatile scorer with a diversifying offensive arsenal …

Weaknesses: He lacks elite explosiveness and leaping abilities and still has to work on his upper body to better adapt to NBA level of competition … Despite his range, he’s not a consistent shooter (less than 30% behind the 3 points line) and he struggles when he has to create his jumper in ISO situations … His mechanics need improvement, especially the release, the spin of his shot is not ideal … He’s versatile offensively, but he’s not excellent in any aspect, showing some flaws in everything … Defensively he has limited lateral speed, causing him to struggle against quicker and explosive opponents … Playing for a showcase team like Mega Vizura might provide inflated numbers / unrealistic expectations …

Notes: He missed half of the season due to a broken hand, he came back in January, averaging 12 pts 6 rbs 2.3 ast per game … He had 11.4 pts, 4.9 rbs at FIBA U20. Played also at FibaU18 2013 with Serbia NT.
