Zoran Nikolic is a tough, physical big man that will look to get points and rebounds to help his team in games. He is an energetic player that will make hustle plays on both ends of the floor. He doesn’t possess elite physical tools, but his ability to score and collect boards could enable him to be a potential second round pick this year.
