Drafted: Pick 19 in 2003 by Jazz
Overview: A sweet shooting young Serbian swingman who was beginning to hit his stride as a player before a holdout delayed his 2007-2008 season debut. Possesses deceptive athleticism, but could stand to add more muscle to his frame. Lack of consistency is indicative of his lack of maturity. Still has some things in his game to iron out. Shows good defensive effort, but needs to be more focused on the offensive end. Improvements as a Cavalier garnered him a three year deal in 2007.
Offense: Gets thirty percent of his touches from spot up situations and another thirty from transition and isolation opportunities. Had a great year in 2007, but has yet to find consistent success. Is deceptively quick and athletic. Can play above the rim. Does a good job of driving to the rim, but doesn’t have the creativity to finish at a high clip. Isn’t going to shoot a great percentage off the dribble. Can put up big numbers when he gets going. Will have a hard time scoring against physical defenders. Decent ball handler, but can be pushed off the ball. Has a nice spin move. Gets a bit overzealous off the dribble at times. Makes some bad passes that get deflected too easily when he dribbles into trouble.
Defense: Is one of the better perimeter defenders on the Cavaliers roster. Consistently gives a good effort. Gets in a low stance and moves his feet well. Doesn’t box out very well or rebound the ball at a reasonable clip for his position. Plays passing lanes pretty well. Commits a few too many fouls for a wing. Needs to cut down on his reaching. Does not guard the post very well.
