Summary:

Deni Avdija is a smart, skilled basketball player that can help his team in a variety of ways. He is a cerebral facilitator that tends to make sound reads and plays on offense, and he also can run the point when called upon to do so. He also can knock down jumpers when given the time and space to do so, and he is a competitive player that will go for rebounds and will get after it defensively. On the other hand, he is a good, but not great athlete, and has not seen much playing time at the highest levels. Still, he is a very talented prospect whose skill set could allow him to thrive in the NBA.
