NBA Draft Prospect Mario Hezonja
6-8 – Shooting Guard – Croatia
Hezonja has an extremely high skill level and an advanced understanding of the game. A fluid passer and ball handler with great court vision and timing. Sees the play before it happens. Accurate three point shooter with a quick release and nice form on his shot. Has a high release and a smooth, consistent stroke.
Can get into the lane well with a hesitation dribble and an assortment of other moves. Very good mid-range game, pull-up jumper and can hit the one-handed runner in the lane. Has excellent length and can guard multiple positions.
Skinny and not yet strong enough for NBA level play (but is young and will surely add muscle and fill out his frame over the coming years). Needs to do a better job of taking care of the basketball and making the smart play. Has the ability to be a solid defender but needs to put in more effort on the defensive end of the court.
