Vlatko Cancar is a 6-8 forward that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a smart, poised player that can make numerous jumpers from all over the court, and he also can get buckets on off-ball motion plays. Plus, he also is a fairly good passer and rebounder as well.
On the other hand, he is not an elite athlete, as he may have more trouble creating his own shot or defending at the next level. He also has been overshadowed by his higher profile teammates, as he currently does not have a whole lot of draft buzz.
But there is no denying his on-court production, and he could definitely be a player to keep an eye on in the future. If he stays in the draft, he could be a potential second round pick this year.
