2015 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Mario Hezonja

5 of 6

What They’re Saying: 

"“He’s the only guy in this draft that someday could potentially win either the dunk contest or the three-point contest — or both — because he’s a phenomenal athlete…He’s mercurial, and maturity has been as issue as a young player…Do not go by his statistics in Barcelona. They do things differently over there. Coaches over there are like college coaches. They kind of rule with an iron hammer, and once they knew he was leaving for the NBA, his minutes started to shrink.”-Fran Fraschilla; ESPN College Basketball and International Basketball Analyst"

"While Hezonja‘s offensive game has started picking up, his defensive tools have shined as well. The fundamentals tend to flicker, but he’s shown the ability to guard multiple positions, cover plenty of ground and make the special play. For what it’s worth, he’s apparently bought into himself as an NBA star in the making. “If I was in college I’d probably be the No. 1 pick. I had an offer from Kentucky,” Hezonja told Basketball Insiders’ David Pick.-Bleacherreport.com Basketball writer Jonathan Wasserman."
