In a team full of nice perimeter players, although none outstanding, point guard Filip Covic is the one who drew the most attention, at least performance-wise.

Very small, actually excessively so and also with a limited wingspan, Covic is a quick playmaker with a notable ability to rack up assists. He’s very effective getting by his match-up in the set offense to attract defenses and feed the open man in the paint for an easy basket. He displays good ball-handling skills, a very nice first step, and the body control to slalom between rivals. He also shows nice court vision dishing the ball off in transition. However, he sometimes gets out of control, over-handles the ball and makes bad decisions. Covic has three-point range on his jumper and can shoot the ball off the dribble, but he’s extremely inconsistent right now.

Very quick on defense, he gets away with a number of steals, especially thanks to his great timing attacking his opponents’ dribble. Anyway, his poor size and shooting struggles basically means that he has little to no NBA potential at the moment, and it’s still not clear at all that he will manage to establish himself in a strong European league either.
