Marko Pecarski

Height: 6-10
Weight: 225
Country: Serbia
Professional Team: FMP Beograd
Classification: International ’00
Birthdate: 2/12/2000

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Adequate low post scorer
Has stretch big potential
Decent playmaker for his size
Good rebounder

 
Cons:

Can miss shots wildly around the basket
May need to improve his face-up game
Struggles to guard quicker players
Not an elite shot blocker
Can be foul prone
Only an average athlete
Has a short wingspan for his size
Has not seen much playing time at the highest levels of pro ball

 

Summary:

Marko Pecarski is a skilled big man that has versatile scoring skills, and he also rebounds the ball well.  He has played well in limited minutes in the Adriatic League and in the Eurocup in the 2017-18 before regressing this past season.​

On the other hand, questions about his athleticism and defense may suggest that he may be a lower upside prospect for the NBA.  He also was unable to get much playing time this year, and he really struggled in the Adriatic League this season.  Right now, he will need to continue to improve as an overall player, as he will likely have to show that he can excel at the highest levels of international basketball.
