NBA Comparison: Zoran Planinic

Strengths: Certainly one of the most complete guards of the young generation in Europe … Born in 1991and appears ready for the 2012 NBA Draft after two years in Liga ACB (Spanish League) … Tomas is a point guard with great size, excellent vision and ability to pass the ball … Physically strong, allowing him to easily finish near the rim … He is a good spot-up shooter, with range out to the three point line … Shooting is not his first offensive option, but in the last Eurocup season he averaged 43% from the distance … He’s a smooth player with a quick first step and a strong ability to finish in traffic … He also possesses standout athletic ability by European standards (he’s a spectacular dunker!) … He has a winning spirit, and always competes hard … He is also a good defensive player because of his desire, athleticism and the versatility to defend multiple positions …

Weaknesses: One-on-one game needs improvement for the NBA … Lacks an in-between game, his shot off the dribble is not very solid … In general he’s not very good to create own shot … Despite his strong body is not a good rebounder … Plays the PG position but may need to transition over the the 2 position for the NBA … Needs to become a little more assertive, (vocal leadership) particularly if he wants to play PG …

Notes: in 2010 he won the Liga ACB Slam Dunk Contest with an incredible show … Has the talent to get consideration for the end of first round … At the 2011 adidas Eurocamp, Satoransky measured: height: 6’5", height w/shoes: 6’6", standing reach: 8’4", weight: 207 lbs,  body fat: 5.27, wingspan: 6’7", 3/4 court sprint 3"17, vertical jump: 1’9", vertical jump free: 3’0"
