Kostas Mitoglou is a smart, fundamentally sound big man that can space the floor and grab rebounds for his team. After playing three seasons at Wake Forest, he decided to play professionally for Panathinaikos. He plays on one of the best teams in Europe, and he is a competitive player that will make energetic plays on both ends of the floor.
His lack of elite physical tools combined with struggling to get consistent playing time may make him an unlikely candidate to be drafted, but Mitoglou’s ability to stretch the floor combined with his motor could likely allow him to have a solid career overseas, and if he ends up playing in the NBA, he could end up being an effective role player in the mold of a Jon Leuer type in the association.
