NBA Comparison: Sani Bečirović/Goran Dragic

Strengths: High basketball I.Q lefty point guard … Has good size and very good length for his position …  Above average athlete … Plays above his size … Has long strides that help him cover a lot of ground …  Possesses a very good first step… Has a fearless approach to the game, doesn’t back down to anyone … Fairly experienced for his age, has been tested – and has hold his ground  –  Against elite competition …  Coachable …  At his best on the open floor … Can play the Pick and roll as the ball handler at a very good level, since he can either shoot, pass to the rolling big, or to a 3rd man …  Has excellent court vision and good passing instincts … Acceptable shooter off the dribble from mid-range… Has shown improvement 3-point shooter in Spot Up situations … Moves very well without the ball and is a very good cutter to the basket from the baseline … A good slasher, likes to drive to the basket and is a good finisher at the rim, especially going to his left … Has a good assist/turnover ratio… Good lateral quickness, can stay in front of his opponent… Good on ball defender, can guard his man full court … Knows how to cover passing lanes and either make steals or deflections … His length helps on defense …

Weaknesses: Not an elite athlete … Lacks an elite burst on his first step … Has to bulk up a little, but his narrow shoulders suggest that this could be a challenge … He can have problems creating his own shot against elite athletes than can stay in front of him … Not a consistent threat from the perimeter yet, needs to continue working on hi Spot Up shot … He must expand his shooting range in his Pull ups all the way to the 3-point line to open up his game more … Left hand dominant, which can make him predictable … He should add some counters to his game when driving to the basket, like a floater, a euro-step or maybe some spin moves … Has problems finishing with his right hand at the rim … Must improve his passing with his weaker (right) hand… He can have some mental lapses on offense, trying to find passes from difficult angles … Decision making still needs work … Can be a little passive at times on offense … Should be more concentrated when he is boxing out on defense, has the tendency to forget to do that … Has problems fighting through screens when defending the Pick and Roll and when he is chasing his opponents around screens …
