DraftExpress continues it?s coverage of the best prospects seen at the European Junior Championship earlier this month in Belgrade, focusing on the small forwards this time.
Among the players featuring the best potential, the most typical specimen seen in this position was a big forward, with the size to play inside (at least in Europe), but showing perimeter skills and nice athleticism. This was perhaps the strongest position in terms of potential and depth, even if top guys like Ersan Ilyasova
or Nemanja Aleksandrov
were missing at the competition. Clipper lottery pick Yaroslav Korolev
headlines this bunch, with Italians Luigi Datome
and Danilo Gallinari
not too far behind, amongst others.
