Pros:

Cons:

Just now may be a good shooter

Struggles to score in traffic

Summary:

Simone Fontecchio is a tall swingman that just now has been shooting the ball well this season overseas.  On the downside, his playing time has been cut drastically in order for him to be a more efficient shooter and scorer for his team.  Most likely, he will probably go undrafted, but it is possible that an NBA team may take a look at him late in the second round as a draft and stash pick.
