Stats : 5.1pts 2rbds in 2017-18 (FC Barcelona II, LEB Gold)
NBA comparison : Dragan Bender
One of the top prospects his age in Europe. Long stretch four with the ability to shoot from outside or drive to the basket. Pretty good athleticism and length. Decent shot blocker as he proved it with 1.8blk per game at Euro U18. Shot more than 40% from three during this competition on three attempts per game. Decent rebounder. Can lead the break and also play some minutes at the SF spot.
Only averaged 5.1pts and 2rbds in 12min in Spanish 2nd division. Needs to gain toughness as he’s a bit soft and lacks muscle. Never tries to play back to the basket. Not the most versatile player either, only looks to score (1.3as for 2.8tos at Euro U18 in 26min). Needs to prove he can be efficient at the senior level. Will play in Adriatic League with Slovenian powerhouse Ljubljana next year.
