Jan Vesely SF/PF
21 years old, International
2011 stats: 15 games, 27 mpg, 10.1 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 60% FG, 35.7% 3pt FG, 44.4% FT
Prediction: Between the 5th and 10th pick
Strengths: More athletic then you would expect from a European player, Vesely is at his best in the open court finishing on the break. He is a very good offensive rebounder and plays with high activity. Has good length and size and could develop into a all-nba type defender one day. Watching him play reminds me of watching Andrei Kirilenko from the Utah Jazz. Shoots the ball pretty well from 3 point land as well.
Weaknesses: Doesn’t create his own offense at this point. Needs to work on his post up game and coming off of picks hitting jump shots. With his athletic ability and size, he should be a better post player. Needs to work on his rebounding as well, along with adding muscle to his frame. Is a terrible free throw shooter.
