Summary:

Aleksandar Vezenkov is a productive, combination forward that plays in some of the toughest professional leagues from around the world.  He’s a really good shooter that continually makes good decisions on the court, and he has been very productive at the highest levels of international basketball.​

But on the other hand, his lack of mobility and athleticism for either forward position may put a ceiling on how well he may perform at the NBA level.  But, while he is not likely to become a superstar in the NBA, Vezenkov may have the skills to be a solid role player in the association.
