2016 FIBA U18 European Championship Scouting Reports: Wings
December 30, 2016

Leo Cizmic, 6'8", 17.9 years old, Small Forward, Sevilla, Croatia

Strengths:
-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.

Weaknesses:
- 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.
