Drago Pasalic NBA Draft Scouting Report
Sep 01, 2004, 05:35 pm
The jumper is the most noticeable attribute of this big man. He can shoot it from three point land, although his mid-range shot is more reliable. He delivers it quite fast, receiving the ball and shooting right away, and his mechanics are surprisingly good for a player of his size. But this is not the only pleasant surprise; Pasalic is very well proportioned and coordinated for a player of his height. He is quite an athletic big guy, showing mobility, running the court pretty well and displaying a decent vertical leap. He also has a good body frame that will allow him to put some weight.
He's a decent rebounder, shining particularly on the offensive end, where he shows skill especially on put-backs. He also has a soft touch around the basket. Considering his skills and the way he uses them, Pasalic is an intelligent player; He knows how to play without the ball, and he seems to have a good understanding of the game.
