The top scorer and go-to-guy for the Latvian team, Dairis Bertans has a skinny frame with quite long arms. Hes a pretty decent athlete with good quickness and footspeed, but mainly stands out as a scorer who runs the wings well to get free on the perimeter. Once he has the ball, hes able to either look for a shot (either spotting up or off the dribble) or slash to the basket. Hes also an OK passer who knows how to find his teammates when driving, and also in fastbreak situations.
Bertans outside shooting isnt as reliable as you might expect, which can definitely be caused by his poor shot selection. He connected on only 33.3% of his 3 point shots. Also his free throw percentage definitely needs improvement at 67%. Bertrans does have the ability and confidence to take over a game and respond also in decisive moments. As a ball handler hes solid too, dribbling up in many occasions and pushing the ball well on the break.
Defensively hes surely able to do his part and with good intensity and lateral footspeed, able to defend very close-by without fouling or getting surpassed. His awareness on help defense on the other hand is improvable.
With continued development Bertans should be able to forge himself a nice career in Europe, although maybe not at the very highest level.
