Vassilis Charalampopoulos is a skilled combination forward that can shoot and score in a variety of ways, and he is a gifted passer that makes good decisions with the basketball.
On the other hand, he may struggle to consistently create his own shot off the dribble, and he does not possess great speed or ball handling skills for the small forward position. Sometimes, he can tend to make decisions too slowly, and his lack of elite athletic ability can make it difficult for him to guard quicker players.
Right now, Charalampopoulos projects to be a second round prospect for the 2019 draft. He has been a productive player at some of the toughest professional basketball leagues, especially for someone his age. With his skill set, he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
