Leo Cizmic, 6'8", 17.9 years old, Small Forward, Sevilla, Croatia
-Has good size for the wing at 6'8 with a well-proportioned frame and decent length.
-Versatile player who shows flashes in a number of areas
-Likes to push the ball off the defensive glass. Can handle it nicely for his size, especially in the open court.
-Has a good feel for finding the open man. Moves the ball unselfishly. Makes no look passes for layups in transition. Plays the game at a unique pace
-Shows some flashes in the pick and roll, finding open man with lobs and bounce passes.
-Often first to loose balls coming off the glass using his anticipation skills. Career 9.5 per-40 rebounder
-Stroke doesn't look bad, but not consistent with it at all. Can make 3s with feet set or off the bounce with decent shooting mechanics. Comes out of hand nicely.
- Fluid athlete, but nothing exceptional from an NBA standpoint.
-Had a very poor tournament productivity wise. Really struggled to score efficiently at the U18s. 26% 2P%, 32% 3P%
-Still trying to figure out how to create shots in the half-court at a high level.
-Shies away from contact around the basket. Barely gets to the free throw line
-Has a low release on his jumper, making it easy to contest. Little bit of a one-handed fling/push going on. Shot takes a while to get off. Super flat-footed pull-up with too much of a wind up.
-Lacks a degree of character. Little bit too unselfish. Defers when they need him to be aggressive. Then tries to force the issue. Had a difficult time finding his rhythm. Didn't want the ball late in games
-Gets down on himself visibly when things aren't going his way. Doesn't play off his instincts
-Gets beat off the dribble a little more than you'd hope.
Outlook: Big wing with nice versatility and talent. Was likely the best long-term prospect on the roster, but couldn't help Croatia avoid relegation.
