Popović is 6 footed, left handed PG.  He was a captain of Belgrade squad which won Lions cup in 2018. His father is a coach, coaching team where Srđan plays. Overall, one of the best players at the moment in generation. Physically ahead of his age, due to his fast developing body. Uses both hands, still left is slightly better. Runs the transition very well, but driving to the hoop is his main weapon. Efficient perimeter shooter, also able to hit mid range off the dribble jumpers. Keeps his teammates involved with assists. Defensive wise good at 1 on 1 defense. Size could be an issue in future.

Strengths

  • strong side drives
  • mid range and long range shot
  • steals
  • physical abilities for his size

Weaknesses

  • size, probably done with growing
  • dribbles too much from time to time
