Coming off an impressive showing at the adidas Eurocamp in Treviso, Boris Barac emerged as the second leading scorer at this tournament, making this something of a breakout summer for him.

The brother of Euroleague standout Stanko Barac, Boris doesn't have quite the size of the former Indiana Pacers second round draft pick, but he seems every bit as skilled.

Standing a solid 6-9, with long arms and a well developed frame, Barac has adequate size for a face-up four man. He's not overly quick or explosive—his high hips detract somewhat from his long-term athletic potential—but he is an impressive offensive player. He has great scoring versatility for a player his age.

Barac is first and foremost an excellent shooter. He has a quick, natural release and unlimited confidence in his jumper, both when spotting up and off the dribble. He's more than just a one-dimensional player, though. He's also capable of putting the ball down and driving in either direction, even if he's somewhat limited in his finishing ability due to his lack of vertical explosiveness. He also has the strength needed to post up a bit inside, mostly to create space to get off a high-arcing turnaround jumper.

Defense and rebounding are two areas of Barac's game that he will have to improve to show he can play at the highest levels of basketball. His lateral foot speed is not great and he's a bit mechanical in his movements, which may make it difficult for him to defend more athletic players who can take him off the dribble. In the post, he has just average size. He'll need to show he has the strength and toughness to keep up with bigger players who will try to push him around inside the paint.

Boris Barac, after going 6/6 from three-point land yesterday was Croatia's leading scorer and ”only” shot 50% from three (3/6). While clearly not a great athlete by NBA standards, Stanko's brother is a player to keep an eye on considering his size, scoring instincts, aggressiveness, and age (born in 1992).

Meanwhile, Boris Barac – the brother of former NBAer and current Spanish ACB league player Stanko Barac – a 6'9” 1992er, could not miss. From three-point land Barac went 6/6 for a whopping 32 points. That is easily the most a player has scored in any running clock game in this camp to date. Barac went 13/19 overall and also nabbed 5 boards. Needless to say, he acquainted himself quite well with the NBA scouts in attendance. We'll need to see today if his performance was an accurate reflection of talent-level or just a game for the ages.
