NBA Comparison: Wang ZhiZhi

Stevan Petrovic - 6/28/2007

Strengths: Barac improved dramatically his overall skills since last year He is nice prospect with good size and good combination of fundamentals, basketball IQ and shooting ability Offensively his main weapon is his outside jump-shot (Barac possesses shooting range out to Euro-3point line 35.9%) If opponents give him just a bit of space, he can convert the jump-shot His release is not that quick and it looks kind of slow, but the mechanics are good What surprises me the most is his slashing ability and his ball-handling skills Not many players his size can take the ball and create off the dribble the way he can If his defender plays too close, he will use his first step and get by him driving to the basket like a guard On the low post Barac is not that skilled but scores on put-backs, some dunks, and right hand hook shot that he likes to use Defensively he is effective around the basket His frame and long arms alert many shots around the basket (no many players are driving to the basket when he is around the rim or shoot over him) Barac cant get off the ground that quick to block shots, but his motivation and good positioning on defense makes up for it He has been given lots of minutes this year (27:30) Most important, Barac is eager to improve his game Player with right attitude on the court

Weaknesses: Offensively Barac has to improve his low post game ... Must find his go-too move and stick with it on the low post He relies too much on his jump-shot Barac posseses nice size but must learn how to play inside more Lacks great lateral foot speed Defensively if he steps out of the paint, he cant do anything If there is a miss-match or pick and roll where he needs to step up and get beck he is in big trouble (also he struggles in weak side help) Lack of explosiveness and stamina Barac has to learn how to bang on the low post in order to play at the next level Gets pushed around by stronger opponents Does not see the floor that well and struggles to pass out of the post Lacks much experience
