Season:

Balša is son of a former Euroleague champion Slaviša Koprivica. Standing at 7’1” Koprivica is the tallest player of ’00 eneration. Runs the floor well and moves very fluidly for his size. Good in and around the paint.
Decent defender, guards stronger and smaller defenders without problems. Shot blocking is his major defensive strength. Athletically, solid footwork and agility, could be a bit more explossive. However, with the skills and size he possess, Balša is a legit NBA prospect. Committed to Florida State university.
