Summary:

Nikos Rogkavopoulos is a skilled, versatile point forward that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He can knock down plenty of jumpers off the catch, and he also can score on hustle plays.  He also is a solid playmaker that can run the point, and he is an unselfish player that can rack up assists.  He will need to be more assertive on offense, and he will need to improve his defense.  Still, he is a talented prospect that could potentially end up being a find for an NBA team in the second round of the 2020 draft.
