Intriguing Euro Prospects


While there's already been a post about Evan Fournier, and I just posted a fan shot regarding Nemanja Bjelica, I thought I'd take a look at some other Euro Prospects.

I know we've all probably heard of this guy by now, but Alexey Shved is really an intriguing prospect.

Oddly enough this site has him listed at 161 pounds ...? While his Wiki has him at 190

He doesn't look like THAT much of a twig in this highlight video ...

I think it's amazing what we see here. Splashing contested NBA range threes. Handling the ball, pushing the pace, finishing lay ups after contact and showing off some impressive bounce. Somebody will sign him and ... as they are rumored to be interested, it might as well be the T-Wolves. Some of his moves actually kinda look like Ricky out there.

Another intriguing prospect is Kostas Papanikolaou. It could be my Greek American heritage that's got me excited about this guy, but ... he's 6'8" also has NBA 3 point range and displays a competitive fire and intensity that has been rare among Greek Ballers. While like most Euro SFs he seems to have slower feet than ideal, but his athleticism will surprise. Take a look at some highlights.

Big question THAT highlight reel brings, is how many steps has Andrei Kirilenko lost?

There there's the Giant of the Draft 22 year old Dusan Cantekin. 7'4" Serbian Center. Apparently he's a big raw athlete. How can that size not merit a second round pick ... ?

The only video I could find of him ... looks like old footage, he doesn't look 7'4" ... but anyway it's a fun play.
