Summary:

Ziga Samar is a smart, skilled playmaker that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He especially played well in the Spanish ACB League this season.  He isn’t an overwhelming athlete, and he may struggle to consistently create his own shot or defend upper-echelon players at times, but he is a very competitive combo guard whose solid offensive skills could enable him to be a solid role player in the NBA.
