Djoko Salic, 6-10, Center, KK Spars, Bosnia, 1995
-Solid height for a center at around 6-9 or 6-10. Good length. Very strong frame
-True inside player. Gets deep post position and finishes around the basket effectively
-Draws a ton of fouls
-Terrific rebounder. Great hands. Very instinctive on the glass. Pursues loose balls. Moves opponents around with strong frame
-Average athlete. Not very quick or explosive. Not a great floor runner. Needs to improve conditioning
-Struggles to score if he can't simply bully opponents and catch the ball around the rim. Doesn't have very advanced footwork. Somewhat mechanical with his decisions
-Needs to improve ability to step outside the paint and make a mid-range jumper
-Average basketball IQ. Somewhat of a black hole. Rarely passes ball. Dished out just two assists in 254 minutes compared with 37 turnovers.
-59% free throw shooter
-Poor defender. Not a presence inside the paint (2 blocks in 254 minutes). Struggles to step outside on the pick and roll. Limited lateral quickness and explosiveness.
Outlook: Brute interior scorer. Very strong and aggressive interior player who can simply bully players around at this level of competition. Has solid potential at the senior level thanks to his strong frame and excellent hands, but must continue to round out his game by improving his skill-level, conditioning and basketball IQ.
