NBA Comparison: N/A

Stevan Petrovic - 6/21/2007

Strengths: Very tough and strong prospect coming out of Serbia Straightforward post player ... Rakovic is the type of player that loves contact in the low-post Holds his position very well on the court Doesnt mind doing the dirty work in order for his team to win If he creates position down low he will score (doesnt shy away from bigger and stronger defenders) Most of his points are put-backs, dunks (coming off assist or pick-and-roll) and hook shots (likes the two foot jump-stop-hook shot) Offensively he likes playing with his back to the basket and he excels at the pick-and-roll game Possesses solid touch from 15-18 feet (loves to shoot from the elbow) If his defender plays back he won't hesitate to turn around and shoot or pump-fake and attack the basket Very strong, explosive and athletic player of the floor Rakovics game is basic He knows what he is capable of doing offensively (he doesnt force any shots) Seems to always be in position for rebounds (always active on the glass) Competitive player who wants to win Runs up and down the court well for his size (transitions from offense to defense well) Could develop into a role player in the NBA

Weaknesses: Rakovic is very limited player offensively Cant create offense (his game is very simple) He overpowers most of his opponents in Serbian League, but may struggle to do that in the NBA He will have to find his go-too move and work on improving and extending his game offensively His outside shot does not possess consistency and real range Has to be more consistent Lacks ball-handling ability Not much of a passer; he has troubles when he gets double-teamed
