-Great frame that will fill out considerably in time
-Solid athlete. Moves well.
-Can set quick screens and roll swiftly to the rim to catch and finish. Reliable finisher when catching the ball on the move in the paint
-Good rebounder. Can go out of area with quickness and length.
-Solid rim-protector. 3.3 blocks per-40.
-Has the ability to step out onto perimeter and stay in front of smaller players
-Gets in passing lanes (1.7 steals per-40)
-Has decent form on jumper. Made a handful of jump-shots at U19s, even an occasional 3-pointer. May be able to develop this part of his game in time
-Not a naturally high-motor guy. Intensity level comes and goes. Will jog half-heartedly up and down the floor at times
-Conditioning isn't great. Tires fairly easily
-Mostly a catch and finish guy offensively. Has poor footwork.
-Doesn't have any ability to score with back to the basket
-Hands are so-so. Will bobble some good passes at times
-Not consistent with jumper yet. Only shot 57% from free throw line. 49% from line at U18s last summer
-More of a center than a power forward offensively, but undersized for the position at 6-9
Outlook: Rebounded from a very poor high school season with a solid tournament in Crete. Lacks elite size or athleticism to be considered a top-shelf big man prospect from an NBA standpoint, but should nevertheless be a difference maker at the college level at St. John's with a chance to get drafted down the road if his skill-level, feel for the game and motor continue to improve.
-Very athletic big man with an excellent wingspan and a frame that will fill out nicely in time
-Tremendous rebounder. 15 per-40 in Belgrade
-Excellent timing as a shot-blocker. 5.3 per-40. Legit rim protector
-High energy player who competes admirably
-Very limited offensive player. 6.1 points per-40 minutes shooting 33% for 2
-Doesn't really know his limitations. Settles for some highly questionable shots. No ability to operate with his back to the basket. Shows limited touch.
-Made 25% of his free throw attempts
Outlook: Spanish big man of African descent who appears to be on the college track. Can be a very useful rotational piece for a good college team as he has excellent length, athleticism and timing as a rebounder/shot-blocker. Will need to develop the rest of his game to improve his NBA prospects, but he's only 17 so time is on his side.
