Draft Notes

A tough, strong point guard/combo guard who has a low center of gravity and the size and strength to impose his will on the defense. He plays with his head up and has great passing vision and instincts.

Topic is more of a below the rim player who can absorb contact in the lane. He’s a very creative finisher who can score around the rim over length and has an uncanny ability to get into the lane, despite not having elite burst.

Has a good looking 3pt stroke and keeps the defense honest.

Can go left or right and finish with either hand.

After an incredibly product stint in the Adriatic League Topic has stepped up to EuroLeague play.
