Summary:

Tolga Gecim is a 6-8 point forward that has been playing in Turkey’s top professional league this year.  He is a tall, cerebral playmaker that can rack up assists.

​On the downside, his average at best physical tools and less than ideal skills in the other facets of the game could mean that he may not have much upside at the NBA level.  Right now, he is a borderline second round candidate.  At best, he could end up being an effective role player in the NBA.
