Croatian point guard Karlo Vragovic had a good performance during this championship, including one really excellent game of 30 points, 7 rebounds and 2 steals. He has a good frame and nice strength, paired with just average athleticism. He has a pretty nice and quick shooting stroke with 3 point range, and is able to create his own shot off the dribble too. Nevertheless, he’s not the most reliable shooter from long range. He shows good slashing ability beating his man off the dribble with ease, usually finishing strong around the rim, and drawing a fair share of fouls in the process.
Vragovic is also a crafty ball handler with both hands and decent passing skills. Even so, being a decent distributor on the perimeter, he doesn’t have that superior court vision and awareness to throw around exciting passes or create for his teammates on a regular basis. He is a confident player who’s certainly not afraid to take responsibility when it matters most.
On defense he’s not a guy who’ll get you many steals, but he brings very good intensity and is comfortable putting pressure on his opponent. He always tries to stay in front of his man, and has nice footspeed to avoid getting beat.
Vragovic is a player to follow and see how he develops against higher level competition. He’s probably not be an immediate draft prospect, but could have a very nice career in Europe.
