Summary:

Marko Arapovic is a skilled big man that can score inside and out, and he also is a very good passer  He operates well out of the post, as he can get scores and assists for his team, and he possesses an adequate mid-range shot, though he will need to improve his ability to make threes from downtown.

But he only possesses average athletic tools, which may limit his defensive potential, as he is only a mediocre rebounder and is a subpar shot blocker that is foul prone.  Right now, he is on the second round bubble for the 2017 NBA Draft.
