Son of Miroslav Pecarski is one of the top European prospects in his generation. Good sized big, 6’10” tall, has tremendous offensive versatility, able to create points from all over the court. Great post skills, ability to stretch defense with his decent mid range and 3pt shot. Beside rim protecting and shot blocking abilities, not willing to play defense. Has a room to improve athletic abilities, still has good offensive footwork. Ego and superstar mentality are issues. Recently signed his first proffesional contract with Partizan. If he improves body and athleticism, Marko will be a legit NBA prospect. Won EC title in 2018 with u18 NT and was MVP of the competition.

Strengths

  • excellent post skillset
  • mid range and long range shot
  • rim protection in defense
  • great size
  • elite offensive versatility
  • feeling for the game

Weaknesses

  • lack of body strength at the moment
  • bad defender overall, has no wish to play defense
  • slow lateral movement
  • below average length
  • has room to improve athleticism

U18 European championship 2018 preview:

Leader of this team. Big guy with a very unique offensive skillset and versatility in scoring. Was a top scorer of almost every game in preparation games. Marko has enormous mix of inside game with smooth post moves and outside game with ability to hit spot up shots. Already a legit senior player who had a Eurocup debut for Partizan in past season. This will be his 4th EC so far where he is expected to lead his team throughout competition and to repeat performances he had 2 years ago at u16 EC where he averaged 26.6ppg and 15.9rpg. 6’10” big, ranked #2, is one of the most talented players in Europe at the moment. Wish to play defense is biggest doubt about him
