Summary:

Aleksandar Lazic is an athletic, energetic combo forward that plays a lot of minutes for Mega Bemax in the Adriatic Leeague as well as in the Serbian League.  He rebounds quite well for a player his size, and he could potentially project into a defensive specialist role in the NBA.

He will need to improve his jump shot as well as his ability to create his own shot on offense, and he will need to prove that he can defend upper echelon opponents on a more consistent basis, but his athleticism and potential to develop into a defensive specialist could enable an NBA team to take a flier on him late in the second round this year.
