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.
