Ongjen Jaramaz is an athletic, skilled combo guard that could potentially be a second round pick in 2017. Recently, he was named the MVP of the Adidas Eurocamp.
He is an aggressive scorer that will relentlessly attack the basket, as he will drive hard to the basket. Jaramaz is fearless in taking the ball to the rim, and he has very good strength and body control to get scores in the paint. But, he will need to improve his jump shot, as he struggles to knock down jumpers consistently when he is on the floor.
Right now, Jaramaz could be a potential draft and stash option for NBA teams to consider in the second round portion of the 2017 NBA Draft. His strong ability to drive to the hoop could enable him to develop into being a plus-level scorer in the NBA, as he could perhaps end up adding some punch off the bench for a team down the road.
