Paunovic is good sized guard standing at 6’7” at the moment. Beside size, has markable length and athleticism, as well. He is a leader of his team on the court, likes to keep his teammates involved in the game. Has great basketball IQ and decision making ability. Zoran is a mainly scorer who can get to the points in various ways. His major offensive strength, beside great IQ is dribble pull up jumper that was unreachable for majority of defenders this year thanks to his extremely high shooting release. He has great usage of a dribbling and offensive awareness. Strong first step helps him in driving to the basket, specially when going right side. Zoran is a good PnR ball handler with ability to create both for him and his teammates. 3pt shot is not on the needed level, but it is getting better. Thanks to his size and length and good vertical managed to have 7.7rpg in u19 league. Defensively, solid on ball defender, uses his long arms in stealing the ball, had 1.7spg in u19 league and 3.3spg in ANGT Belgrade in February 2018. Paunovic has to strengthen his body in order to play on higher level. Could work on shot selection, also, because he has a bad habit of taking unnecessary tough shots occasionally. Won u18 EC with Serbian NT 2018.
