Mario Hezonja – 6’8, 200 lbs. Shooting Guard (International)

Strengths: A confident, prolific scorer who can really fill it up when he’s given the freedom (and playing time) to be aggressive. Has great size and athleticism for an NBA wing.

Weaknesses: Defense. Has been criticized for attitude and/or body language often. Rarely looks to create for others. Signed a seven-year contract with Barcelona in 2012 that has a buyout slightly more than $2 million. Saw just limited action with his club team.
