Bosnian U22 Prospects how they did in Europe this year!

Edin Atic: Edin struggled to get on the court for AEK and received a loan to another Greek league team Aries Trikalla. It didn't improve his situation by much however and he still struggled to get minutes. He played 45 minutes for the club going 5-14 from the field including 1-6 from three. He's now had two less than impressive seasons back to back and is in need of having a breakout campaign before he is forgotten about by teams, talent only goes so far and Atic needs to have more production to establish himself as a professional.

Sandro Antunovic: He had a chance to get into 14 Croat league games for Kvarner 2010 averaging 5mpg 3ppg 1.2rbpg while shooting 62.1% from two. He has a chance to have a productive career in Europe as he is only 19 years old and has good length at 208cm.

Nedim Buza: A lost year due to a devastating injury with the National Team, he missed the entire season and only recently began light basketball activities. It looks like a long road back for the one time Phenom and adding insult to the injury BiH left him off the roster for the preliminary roster this summer. He was a surefire 2nd round NBA draft pick this summer until the injury happened; now it appears very unlikely.

Sani Campara: Sani played big minutes for Real Madrid II team playing in 16 games averaging 22mpg 6.8ppg 1.4rbpg 1.4aspg while shooting 59.5% from two and 81.3% from the FT line. He struggled shooting from three hitting only 24.2% but looks like he will be able to hit it with regularity once he adds some core strength. He still has physical limitations that will be hard to overcome but overall he remains a very good European level prospect for his team. He also played well for the team at the Adidas Next Generation Tournament.

Njegos Sikiras: He had some freak injuries and a contentious transfer from Italy but that finally was settled and he appears to be on track to have a big year next season. He was originally looking to move to Alba Berlin before signing with Fuenlabrada Spain.

Nedim Djedovic: He played ok for FC Barcelona II before getting his release and signing with Araberri in Spain. He played at about the same level with his new club averaging 7.3ppg and shooting well from two and three. He's got great size but lacks elite skills, killer instinct and is a passive player on the basketball court. It is really questionable how good of a career he will have, after once being considered a better prospect than his older brother Nihad.

Sandro Gacic: It's hard to believe seven years ago he was considered the best prospect of his generation in Europe by some. He has slowly developed into a solid player but questions about his commitment as well as health setbacks and a lack of elite athleticism has changed the trajectory for the young man. He played in 25 games averaging 27mpg 11.8ppg 3.2rbpg 2.2aspg 1.2stls while shooting 42.5% from two, 33.9% from three and 75% from the FT line. Bottom line his shooting, shot selection and athleticism will limit his prospects as a pro going forward.

Amar Gegic: An elite athlete with NBA level athletic profile, Amar moved on from Spars right before the season began. It took a while for him to get minutes on the court for Bayern II but when he did his massive skill set was on display for everyone to see. He played in 18 games averaging 22mpg 8.2ppg 2.9rbpg 2.9aspg while shooting 56.8% from two and 68.3% from the FT line. He has a chance to play minutes with the first team next year in Munich who has big ambitions in Europe.

Dino Kobic: Dino and his teammate Ibrahim Mulaomerovic struggled to get minutes on the court. He still has a chance to develop into a decent European level player.

Aleksandar Lazic: Lazic stayed healthy and played a major role for his club Dynamic BG. He has lost some of his elite athleticism from an earlier knee injury but is still a good athlete and an excellent rebounder for his size. He has no real standout attributes but is a solid glue guy who will have a long pro career if he stays healthy. He played in 37 games averaging 25mpg 8.2ppg 6.2rbpg 1.1aspg 1.2stls .8blks and shot 60.3% from two, 26.9% from three and 66.7% from the FT line. He is a solid outside shooter albeit sometimes a streak shooter from three.

Markus Loncar: His club Cedevita played in three leagues, though Loncar only played in the Croat domestic league. He was a solid contributor as a bench player for the team getting into 25 games and averaging 11mpg 4ppg 2.9aspg and shot 65% from two and 62.5% from the FT line. He and Marko Arapovic look like a solid combination at the center positon for the team going into the future.

Nikola Maric: The 18 year old Maric made it two the first division of Spain this season, an accomplishment in its self. For Andorra II he played in 20 games averaging 24mpg 11.9ppg 5.8rbpg 1.2aspg he shot 51.8% from two, 29.7% from three and 75.6% from the FT line. He is undersized but tough and smart and should have a long and productive career in front of him.

Amar Mehic: Amar was once considered the top prospect of his generation by Eurohopes, he has since fallen down that list since his productivity doesn't match his physical profile. He was considered the next Nurkic but those are lofty expectations no one can live up to. He simply is a much rawer, unrefined talent that needs to get a chance to get to work hard and refine his skills. He is exceedingly young to give up on but some of the early hyperbole was just unrealistic.

Lazar Mutic: Lazar was another player who received an insane amount of hype as a youngster, he hasn't live up to the hype but he is exceedingly young and should have plenty of time to develop. He is a bit undersized at 198cm but he may not be done growing yet since he is only 17 years old. He played in 16 games in Spain averaging 17mpg 5.8ppg 4.6rbpg but he struggled to score the basketball shooting 43.2% from two and 38.1% from the FT line. Unless he grows he will likely continue to struggle to convert inside, around the hoop.

Emir Sulejmanovic: Emir played very well in the ABA league but ran into some problems with his club near the end of the season. The team struggled financially and if he had a problem with the team it was likely in major part to the fact the team struggled to pay its players this season. He played in 57 games in the season in a total of four leagues! In 21 ABA league games he averaged 16mppg 7.2ppg 4rbpg while shooting 60.2% from two, 29.4% from three and 51.7% from the FT line. He recently announced a back injury that will keep him from representing BiH this summer.

Kenan Karahodzic: Kenan got into 26 games for Partizan but just didn't get a chance to crack the rotation for the team. His biggest chance to play came in the Champions League were he got into 12 games averaging 11mpg 2.8ppg 2.9rbpg while shooting 62.5% from two, 22.2% from three. He struggled shooting from three going 5-27 during the season. He shot much better from two but he loves to shoot from the outside and over half his shots from the field came from behind the three point line. He played very well for the BiH U20 team during the summer.

Ibrahim Mulaomerovic: Much like his teammate Kobic he struggled to get minutes with his team. He was invited to play for the U18 team along with Kobic but Ibrahim didn't make the team. He did get into five games early but only made a minimal impact. He scored 5pts with 4rbs on the season in 18 minutes.

Ibrahim Durmo: Durmo played very well for Spars this year his length, explosiveness and athleticism is impressive for a domestic player. He can put the ball on the floor and drive to the basket and can play multiple positions. He played in 28 games averaging 20mpg 9ppg 6.3rbpg while shooting 64.9% from two.

Fahrudin Manjgafic: Fahrudin is one of the best prospects in the first division of BiH basketball. He has slowly developed and become a better all-around player for his club. He has the chance to develop into a solid pro in the next few years. He played in 25 games and averaged 15mpg 4.8ppg 2.5rbpg while shooting 55% from two.

Dzanan Musa: Musa played in 60 games this year totaling from three leagues. He was the best player on many occasions for the club and is arguably the best prospect right now in Croatia. He is likely a lottery pick in next year's NBA draft, even with his limited athleticism. At 205cm he is simply overwhelming to most opponents but does struggle when facing elite athleticism. In 29 Croatian league games he averaged 22mpg 12.8ppg 3.3rbpg 1.8aspg while shooting 52.8% from two, 36.2% from three and 76.4% from the FT line.

Darko Talic: Darko got into 22 games in three leagues for Igokea. He played very well in limited minutes and has a bright career ahead of him as a pro guard in Europe for years to come. At 198cm he can play both SG and SF and is a solid shooter from the outside. He went 4-9 from three shooting 44.4% in the Bosnian league. He played in 23 minutes in the Champions league in two games going 3-8 from the field, scoring 9pts with 3rbs 1ass 1stl.

Other Countries National Teams

Milos Glisic: Milos burst onto the season five years ago and has peaked early. He is very limited athletically but he still has a good skill set and should have a solid career as a pro, given his shooting, ballhandling and high basketball IQ. He got into 12 games with Vrasac Swisslion averaging 11mpg 3.8ppg 2.1rbpg while shooting 60.6% from two. He struggled shooting from distance going 0-9 but has shown the ability to knock down that shot in the past. He would have been an elite player thirty years ago as his limits athletically wouldn't have been nearly as pronounced as they are today.

Borisa Simanic: Borisa is a legit NBA prospect; he has height, athleticism and the skill necessary to play in the greatest basketball league in the world. He lacks aggressiveness which is his biggest negative besides those who feel he is a bit stiff and mechanical even though he is a skilled player who has good athleticism. It will be interesting to see how he develops over the next 2-3 years. He played in 21 games but only averaged single digits in minutes in the three leagues he played in. He had the chance to play at the Nike Hoop Summit but his performance didn't stand out. In the Serbian league he shot 12-18 from the field including 4-9 from three. In the ABA league he shot 14-28 from the field including 7-17 from three. It was an extremely limited minutes almost exclusively in garbage time.

Elvis Keric: He has dropped off the radar due to injuries, physical limitations and the disappearance from the basketball landscape of his club Geoplin Slovan. The young player from Sanski Most was once very highly regarded from Europe but he's now 19 and has barely left an imprint in basketball so far, even though he has been given multiple opportunities including representing Slovenia internationally.

Dejan Kovacevic: Kovacevic didn't take the step forward many at Bayern were hoping this season. He played mostly at Bayern II with two other Bosnians Ivo Garic and Amar Gegic. He played in 22games averaging 22mpg 9.6ppg 4.1rbpg while shooting 57.4% from two, 31.6% from three and 74.3% from the FT line. He only played in one game for Bayern's first team. He is highly skilled but much like Simanic lacks what some would call a killer instinct.

Adnan Omeragic: Adnan has grown slow and steady since becoming a high level prospect for Spain five years ago. He has struggled with development and injuries but his team likes his play, the fact that he gives good effort, defends and can impact a game without scoring. In the EBA league he played in 26games averaging 15mpg 5.7ppg 2.6rbpg while shooting 47.7% from two, 28.8% from three and 71% from the FT line. He played 6 games with his first division club in Spain albeit in a very limited capacity going 2-6 from the field.

Darko Bajo: Darko played in 7 games for Cedevita in the Croatian league, he averaged 11mpg 3.4ppg 1.4rbpg while shooting 53.3% from two and 71.4% from the FT line. He is one of the best young prospects in the Balkans who has a high upside with his skill set and athleticism but still needs a lot of development.
