-Despite lacking elite length (6' 7 wingspan), Partizan two-guard Vanja Marinkovic measured 6' 6.5 in shoes with a proportionate 196-pound frame, solid for a 19-year-old two-guard prospect. Marinnkovic plays with a level of maturity and poise beyond his years, and shows potential as a perimeter shooter despite finishing the year shooting 27.6% from beyond the arc. He gets excellent rotation on the ball and is capable of knocking down one or two dribble pull-ups as well. The ball doesn't always come out cleanly and he can be a little bit slow getting into his release, but the touch is there for him to become a reliable shooter in time both on the move and while set.
There isn't a whole lot to Marinkovic's game in terms of shot creation and wiggle with the ball. He's more fluid than explosive and could add a bit more craft as a slasher and finisher, evident by his career 41% 2-point percentage. He also doesn't have a ton of defensive potential given his average length and good not great athleticism, but the fact that Marinkovic is already playing legitimate minutes for Partizan at age 19 is very impressive. He really knows how to play and is by all accounts a good teammate who plays with a strong IQ on the defensive end. Marinkovic will have to be come a more consistent shooter to open up the rest of his game, but there's a lot to like about his maturity, demeanor, size, shooting potential and feel for the game.
