Prospect of the month: November 2008

December 8th, 2008 · No Comments

A quick check who is on the list for our Prospect of the month November. While in the younger categories, the choice was done pretty rapidly, I had more trouble to go for a selection in the other cases. But here we go.

For the 1987 born players, I want to point out the great games that Emir Preldzic has put on the table. The Bosnian-Slovenian forward showed his amazing talent level over a stretch of a few games in November where he came up with some great numbers. It was the particular 18pts, 7rebs and 5asts game against Union Olimpija that marked some minds.

Ludovic Vaty is averaging a double-double (15 and 10) in November so he was one of the options for the 1988 born prospect of the month. I have to give him credit for his performances as his team is struggling badly in the French league as they have not won one single game so far. I could have easily taken someone else because of the lower level of his team but I prefer to use these voting to put the light on some of the lesser known players.

The big Milan Macvan is doing pretty well at the moment as show his impressive stats in the Adriatic League these days. He started the month particularly well with three big games in a row and an amazing shooting touch. This was enough to be at the top of the in general less talented 1989 generation in Europe.

With Ricky Rubio injured, Motiejunas slowing a bit down and Jan Vesely only coming up with the good games in the end of the month, I want to present a very interesting young man from Austria: Rasid Mahalbasic. The 2m07 tall forward with Slovenian origins averaged 15.7ppg and 6.3rpg in the Austrian league in November which are pretty good numbers for such a young guy. Keep an eye on his development.

For the 1991 born players, there was not that much competition as Mirza Sarajlija started his Euroleague career in the best way. The Slovenian PG which I featured in a short scouting a few days ago was the clear-cut number one of the youngest of the categories this month.
