    There is one other forward from the same generation. Boris Tisma of Real Madrid. They lack again in guard position.

      Hezonja is a bust and looks like he finished his NT career without even starting.

      I like Dreznjak (looks tremendous in ABA, will be a good guard) a lot, Perasovic (because of father in his gens), Perkovic. No extra class perhaps but a solid base.

      What I've seen from Roko until now in ABA - needs to add weight and pounds, until now difficult to say how he will look in 2-3 years condition wise, but frame looks good. Very versatile, has total freedom to do whatever he wants (shot struggles a lot from outside), great feel inside the paint, both for rebounding and finishing around the rim. Will be a good player without any doubt. No accelerant for sure but I think that gap between him and a good player looked way bigger at U16 EC than it will be between him and good player in seniors.

      For a 18 year old boy this are solid stats. Especially because he isn't camping at the free throw line like some other prospects to pump their PPG.

        SG Hezonja
        SF PF Prkacin, Samanic, Saric
        C Ivica Zubac

        What are other real deal pieces for foreseeable future?
        Prkačin has body of Apolon. He has grown s bit. Around 205, 215 wingspan. Strong body for his age and very athletic. His has same post moves as his father. On perimeter he needs polish both shooting and skills. He likes to atack the basket but uses more athleticism than skills. Unlike Hezonja and Benser he looks steady and focused so I'm confident in him

        As for guards Lovro Gnjidic 01. is interesting player. Has great potential. 201 PG who reminds on Zoran Planinić. More athletic but less skilled. He has shown some flashes this season for Cibona. He had lack of will in past but as he matures he acknowledges that he has to work harder

        On SG Mateo Drežnjak 99. already established himself in NT. He has nice combination of skills and athleticism. Plays well for Cibona this season. He could develop into good euroleagu player. Duje Brala 03. already getting nice minutes for Zadar. He has some nice potential as well
        Jordi Bertomeu sucks!
