Position: SF                         From: Latvia                       Class/YOB: 1998

Height: 6’9                          Weight:                200                         Wingspan: N/A

 

Strengths:

  • Great size and length for a wing. One of the five biggest wings in the draft.
  • Penetrates well for his size. Gets low and accelerates with fluidity. Gets up well to finish at the rim.
  • Very skilled. Can hit shots spotting up or on the move. Good ball-handler for his size. Has some playmaking feel.
  • Defensive potential. Outsizes most matchups. Slides in front of ball-handlers. Help-side defense is impressive as well. Could be able to guard three positions.

Weaknesses:

  • Body isn’t developed yet. Limits defensive versatility. Can get pushed around a lot.
  • Didn’t see a lot of time with Barcelona this past season. Was a year of limited development in on-court competition.
  • Shooting is good, but regressed against better competition this year. Wonder if confidence was a bit shook.
