Updated on 10/14/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-10
Weight: 205
Country: Serbia
Professional Team: Mega Bemax
Classification: International ‘03
Birthdate: 6/9/2003

Projected Draft Range: Late 1st to 2nd Round

Pros:
Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Solid playmaker
Moves fairly well off the ball on offense
Decent rebounder
Decent shot blocker for his size
Above average athlete

Cons:
Inconsistent shooter
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Not an elite rebounder
Not an elite shot blocker
Can tend to be unfocused defensively
Not an elite athlete
Needs to add strength

Summary:
Nikola Jovic is a skilled combo forward that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he is also a good passer, especially for a player his size.  He will need to be a more consistent outside shooter, and he will need to improve his focus defensively.  He’s not overwhelmingly athletic, but his intriguing skill set and offensive skill level could make him a solid candidate to go in the late first round range for the 2022 draft.
