Karlo Matkovic, Croatia, PF/C, Cedevita Zagreb, 16.0 Strengths
-Strong physical profile for his age. Long arms. Big hands. Frame that will fill out nicely in time.
-Very good athlete who blocks shots and plays above the rim
-Shows potential as a mid-range shooter. Soft touch facing the basket
-Instinctive defensively. Gets in the passing lanes. Shows timing rotating from the weakside
-Active on the offensive glass
-Looks to have significant upside to continue to improve
-Frame has a long ways to go. Gets pushed around inside by stronger players. Commits a lot of fouls
-Forces some difficult passes at times. Lacks experience and polish like most young big men his age
-Not a consistent shooter yet. Will need to expand his range
 Outlook Matkovic was very quiet in the practices leading up to official game, but impressed in a major way once the lights came on. It's not quite clear what he is at the moment, as that will depend on how much he grows, matures physically and how his skill-level and feel for the game (especially on the perimeter) evolves, but he looks to be on a strong track as a prospect and is absolutely worth monitoring long-term.
