Season:

Popović is a skilled 6’8 big guy who can play both as a PF and C, and even as a SF when needed. One of the most talented players in generation. In and out player, able to play 1vs1, to face up his defender, but also to back up and play on low post thanks to his decent post skills. Solid mid range shooter, but has room to improve long range shot and shot mechanics overall. Very mobile big guy with great motorics, still could be quicker in lateral movements. Body can get stronger, specially upper part. Playing 2nd division of senior basketball this year. Was participant of BWB Europe camp in 2018.
