-Good size for a point guard at 6-2 or maybe 6-3

-Very effective in transition
-Can create his own shot in the half-court. Drives left or right. Solid ball-handler.
-Finishes well around the basket
-Good pick and roll potential
-Can make shots with his feet set. 44% 3-point shooter in Belgrade. 90% FT%
-Puts solid pressure on the ball defensively. Good lateral quickness
-Doesn't have a great frame
-Wingspan is average
-Played both guard spots for his team, relied on more for scoring than distribution
-Needs to improve his left hand for finishes
