Summary:

Roko Prkacin is an athletic, skilled playmaker that has a variety of skills that could prove to be useful in the NBA.  He excels at attacking the basket to garner scores, and he is a tall, playmaking point forward that likes to handle the basketball.  He will need to improve his jump shot and show that he can guard upper-echelon players on a consistent basis. He had a disappointing season this year, but he is a skilled combo forward that is a borderline second round candidate for the 2024 draft.
