Likely the most interesting big man in the whole tournament is this skinny Polish forward that we already saw in the Treviso EuroCamp. He offers an intriguing combination of length, athleticism and face-up skills. Not that he's super athletic, but for a 6-11 guy, he displays nice quickness and the leaping ability to operate above the rim. On the other hand, he's not strong or physical, and his frame would fall somewhere in the "decent" category.
His best offensive weapon at this point is his shooting stroke. He's pretty solid from mid-range distances out to the three-point line, always in static fashion, but showing fluid mechanics. Not a great ball-handler, he can still take advantage of his quickness putting the ball on the floor with both hands (preferably his right one), showing a good first step and long and relatively quick strides. After all, he's not easy to contest for a big-man opponent. He can also play without the ball looking for spaces near the basket. He has good hands to catch the ball and he's fairly quick going up for the dunk, his favorite way of finishing around the rim. If we talk about back-to-the-basket skills, they are nowhere to be found. Perhaps it's because of his skinny body and a certain lack of aggressiveness, or perhaps it's just because he doesn't enjoy any skill there; the fact is he almost never pays a visit to the low post.
Defensively, he struggles against physical opponents, having trouble denying them the ball. Besides, he's an underwhelming intimidator considering his physical gifts, mostly because his timing looks a bit off.
Still he's a nice player with a pretty decent feel for the game, who needs to get tougher. Born in 1990, he's younger than most rivals here and has time to develop.
