Boriša Simanić is a 6’10” power forward is definitely top prospect in his generation,also one of the top prospects in Europe. Has serious list of awards and accomplishments with Red Star in almost every category. Boriša has strong physical tools, with great size and impressive athleticism. Can surprise defenders hitting long range 3-pointers and pull-up jumpers. He has shown many times what is he capable for, but this season showed his real potential only in few games. Has already played many high level professional games, but still needs to show more physical and mental toughness on the court.

Strengths

  • excellent size for PF
  • light on his feet, moves fluidly on the court
  • great and smooth shooter from every zone
  • good athletic abilities
  • ball handling for his height

Weaknesses

  • likes to force non-reasonable shots
  • 7’1/2” wingspan, not so great relative to his height
  • not good passer, rarely passing the ball

U20 European championship 2018 preview:

Top prospect of his generation. Very unique player looking at size, talent and coordination that he combines. Had a Euroleague debut two years ago, managed to score 10 pts against Real Madrid. The most versatile player of this team. Borisa is expected to be the best scorer for Serbia on the EC. Equal threat from inside and outside, has great post skillset with ability to hit tough shots. Great spot up shooter, who can put the ball on the floor without troubles. Defensively relies on his athleticism and length mostly. Just like Glisic, Simanic will play his seventh FIBA competition in Germany
