The leading scorer for FMP, Stefan Popovski-Turanjanin played a very solid tournament that surely increased his standing in the eyes of European basketball talent evaluators.

6-7, with an excellent frame, nice length and solid mobility, Popovski-Turanjanin has good physical tools for European basketball. Left-handed, he displays a fairly complete game for a player his age, even if he lacks great athleticism or the elite scoring instincts to emerge as a top-shelf prospect.

Offensively, Popovski-Turanjanin is first and foremost an excellent shooter, making over 50% of his attempts from beyond the arc at this tournament. He shoots a flat-footed jumper that is very consistent when he has a chance to set his feet, and shows good shot-selection. Seeing extensive minutes at the power forward spot for FMP, he has some capacity to score in the post thanks to his mature frame, soft touch, and solid competitiveness. As a shot-creator, he's somewhat limited, not showing great ball-handling skills and having a tougher time operating with his right hand, even if he can make some plays off the dribble from time to time. An unselfish player with a nice feel for the game, he plays within a team concept like all of FMP's players and is a solid passer.

Defensively, it's difficult to draw too many long-term conclusions about Popovski-Turanjanin's potential from what we saw at this tournament. Guarding strictly power forwards (none of whom were particularly dynamic) but projecting as a small forward down the road, Popovski-Turanjanin has good length, strength and competitiveness, but may lack a degree of lateral quickness on the perimeter. He did a great job on the glass for FMP, though, on both ends of the floor.

A player who should carve out a nice career in European basketball, making the transition to playing on the perimeter full-time should be Popovski-Turanjanin's biggest priority moving forward.
