Strengths: Dragicevic is one of the more talented young players coming out of Serbia … Very smart offensively; has ability to post-up and use his size inside if guarded by smaller defenders or step-out and knock down mid-range jump shots, even 3’s … Scores points in transition due to his high basketball IQ… Dragicevic has the ability to find space around the basket and is always moving to get open … This year he learned that he has to do some dirty work in the paint in order to earn more playing time; much tougher than he looks … Dragicevic has the unique ability to tip in shots when jumping for rebounds… His inside game has improved since last year and he's become a good player around the basket… In terms of scoring on the low post, he loves to turn around pump fake and drop-step or dribble drive … Capable of creating his own shots off short dribbles and feels comfortable with the ball in his hands … Uses his thin frame to get around defenders on the high-post … Great instinct and timing around the basket for rebounds; never gives up and always fights for rebounds … Very active offensively cutting to the basket (back-cuts and back-doors) … Possesses good ball handling ability to get by most power forwards to the basket… On pick-and-rolls he will usually step back for the jump-shot … Good at drawing contact inside and getting to the free-throw line … Improved his passing ability since last year and also finds cutters effectively from the post or perimeter … Runs the floor fairly well for his size … Dead eye at the free-throw line...

Weaknesses: Athleticism is below average … Lacks body strength … His legs and lower body must be much stronger and feet much quicker defensively … Gets overpowered by not only stronger opponents but some strong small forwards too… Not very aggressive defensively … Offensively, Dragicevic must work on his inside game and find his go-to move in the post… His shooting ability is good but it has to become more consistent in games … Has a habit of fading-away while shooting even if smaller defenders are on him; makes his shot off-balance and missing many shots … Lack of experience … While his playing time is improving, he has to prove that he can be consistent ...

-2005-2006 Good Year League: MPG15.3/ PPG 7.6/ RPG 2.1 -Had carrier high 28 points, 11rebounds and 2 steels against Zadar this year. -Member of the Serbia & Montenegro Junior National Team. -Member of the U-20 national team; played at the 2004 European Junior Championship. -Won bronze at the U-20 European Championship in 2005; won gold medal at the U-20 European Championship in 2006. -Good prospect to keep an eye on.
