Name: Marko Todorovic
School/Country: Barcelona Regal (Spain)
Latest Stats: 1.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 0.5 bpg
At 6-foot-11, Marko Todorovic made the decision to enter the 2013 NBA Draft on the final day of the early entrant deadline. Todorovic joins fellow Barcelona Regal teammate Alex Abrines in the draft pool and ironically enough both the Spanish prospects share the same agent.
Todorovic is listed as a center, but he can play both inside positions, if necessary. Todorovic’s playing time with Barcelona this past year was very limited, having only recorded an average of 6.9 minutes per contest. In that time, he averaged only 1.2 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. Todorovic is a project talent and he has never really played big minutes since jumping on the radar of some NBA scouts. He’s a selection that is based simply off potential, but he could hear his name called in the latter portion of the second round.
Strengths: Todorovic has great size at 6-foot-11 and he weighs in at 245 lbs. As his size would indicate, Todorovic can rebound well inside and can put the ball on the floor, if necessary. Todorovic is rangy and he has the ability to catch on the outside and get to the hoop.
Weaknesses: Todorovic has never seen a substantial amount of minutes in Spain, so it’s tough to gauge just how well his game could translate to the NBA ranks. He needs to add some strength and will have to prove his worth and ability to produce if he hopes to make an NBA roster.
Draft Projection: Late Second Round
