Nik Slavica is a very athletic point forward that has an intriguing set of skills that could prove to be useful for him in the NBA. He is a high motor player that can score on hustle plays, and he can be a fill in the blanks type of player for his team when he is on the court. Slavica also is an unselfish player that will set up scores for his teammates on offense.
Plus, he is a gifted rebounder that excels at crashing the glass to haul in many boards for his team. On the other hand, he will really need to improve his jump shot as well as his shot creation skills. Right now, Slavica is a prospect that could potentially project into a defensive specialist role, and he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2019 draft.
