ANGT 2016 RECAP II - BC MEGA BASKET
Marko Pecarski: one of the top 2000 prospects in Europe, Marko is very skilled and talented for his age. On low post has very good touch finishing in contact, dominating with right hook or fade away shots, using pump fakes...but needs to improve his IQ and left hand skills to be less predictable on this actions. Able to play pick & roll or pick & pop with success due his good spacing and speed. From mid range showed his improvements in catch & shoot but isn't a consistent shooter yet. Also is able to play face to the basket, always with pump fake as first resource and then penetrating or using step back shots, has room of improvement in choosing when to use the pump fakes, seems a little mechanical. Excellent feeling in off ball game due his good tactical concepts in cuts, low post positioning and offensive rebounds. Good passing skills from low post in kick out, could improve his passing selection to cuts. On defense is able to guard PF from outside with good lateral movement, suffers in low post against heavier players. Physically needs to improve his upper body strength. Reminds me Nikola Mirotic at his age, so has the NBA potential if he's able to continue improving his body.
Goga Bitadze: has good body mixing size with strength, also has an acceptable mobility for his size. Plays with high intensity and activity. On low post 1x1 dominates to right hand, has to improve his left hand skills and work on his ball touch finishing in contact. Very good offensive rebounder adding second chance points. Also is able to shot from outside with an acceptable shooting mechanical, but has to improve his balance in catch & shot actions. Acceptable passer from low post in kick out. On defense likes to play with high contact level in low post 1x1, in outside defense suffers against smaller players because has to work on his footwork in lateral movement. Acceptable off ball defender in low post and shot blocker. Needs to be smarter avoiding foul troubles. Interesting 99' prospect for his position and game style.
Nikola Miskovic: in between SF/PF the 99' Serbian prospect showed his improvements in SF position on the tournament. Acceptable ball handling allows him to penetrate from outside being and acceptable finisher in contact despite he has to work on his touch ball and left hand skills, also has to improve his passing skills in penetrations because he gets his head down on those actions. Very good in low post 1x1 against smaller players with fast footwork and good IQ choosing the side to finish. Acceptable mid range shooter in catch and shoot, has to work on his three point shoot. Also was active in off ball baseline cuts and in offensive rebounds. In defense he has acceptable lateral movement and needs to raise his contact level in penetration defenses. Acceptable defensive rebounder could be tougher in box out with more weight.
Novak Music: combo guard with scoring inclination, showed acceptable explosiveness on his footwork. Skilled in 1x1, with good ball handling and dribbling skills is able to take advantage in both sides penetration, finishing with lay ups, floaters and taking a lot of fouls. Has to improve his IQ in finishing penetrations being harder and not fading in contact. Good shooter from mid range after right hand bounce and acceptable catch & shoot three point shooter, could be more consistent on his shot. On pick & roll is able to create his own advantage in penetrations but has to improve finding open man and passing to continuations, avoiding turnovers. Feels really comfortable in fast transition game where he can exploit his verticality. On defense possesses a good lateral movement on 1x1, good pick & roll defender due his footwork and arms activity in up defense. Involved in defensive rebounds.
