Summary:

NBA teams may be on a never-ending search for the next Giannis Antetokounmpo in their quest to find the next great overseas talent that may be hidden in an obscure professional league, and some people think that Aleksej Pokusevski could end up being that type of player.

He is a tall, young big man that has filled up the stat sheet against players his age in international competition during the FIBA tournaments, and he currently plays in a 2nd division Greek League for Olympiacos.  More tape and game footage will need to be seen to determine just exactly how good he can be, but some people feel that he could end up being a first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
