2024 rankings were finalized on 6/25/24.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 176
Country: Greece
Professional Team: AEK Athens
Classification: International ‘02
Birthdate: 11/18/2002

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Solid shooter
Excels at scoring on the move
Adequate playmaker for his size
Moves fairly well off the ball on offense
Solid defender
Above average athlete
Good motor

Cons:

Struggles to consistently create his own shot
Not an elite ball handler
Relatively low volume offensive player
Neds to improve his rebounding
Can be undisciplined defensively
May be a bit undersized to play out on the wing

Summary:

Omer Netzipoglou is an agile, skilled combo guard that recently played for AEK Athens. He is a skilled marksman that can knock down outside shots, and he also is a pesky defender that can pressure his man and force plenty of turnovers. He’s an unheralded prospect and isn’t an elite shot creator and will need to add more muscle to his frame, but his ability to shoot, defend, and make team plays could either enable him to make his way to the NBA, or to at least carve out a long and successful playing career overseas.
