Manojlović is 6’6 shooting first guard/wing. He is one of the best offensive players in his generation. Has great shot, overall, good off the dribble, when coming off the screens, in catch and shoot situations, too. Has decent body control and ability to adapt body when finishing in contact. Not really fast with the ball but changes pace fluidly when drives to the hoop. Good rebounder for his position, had 7.1rpg last season. Could be more aggressive defensive player. Has to work on his athletic abilities. Was one of the leaders of U16 NT on Ec in Novi Sad.

ANGT Belgrade preview:
Offensive minded guard/wing won’t be a first option in KK Crvena Zvezda’s offense, but is clearly one of the players that shouldn’t be overlooked. The best player of U17 KK Crvena Zvezda team, where he has 18ppg, 7.7rpg and 5.9apg. Very poised in offense, smart decision maker and all around attacker. Good shooter, specially off the catch and bounce. Solid driver, mostly thanks to his pace changing abilities and long first step. Good body control helps him in traffic and in contact finishes, regardless lack of athletic abilities. Can play as a primarly ball handler, but usually plays as a secondary guard or even a wing. Has great rebounding abilities for his size and position he plays. Manojlović was top scorer of Serbian U16 NT.
