Mario Nakic is a skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He will need to get more consistent playing time overseas, but he is a talented offensive player that can knock down some three-point shots. He could be due for a breakout season at BC Oostende, and he could project to be a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA.
