"Want some good news, #Celtics fans? @ante_zizic got 18 points (7/7 FG, 4/5 FT) and six boards in 21 minutes as Darussafaka won 88-57 in TBL."

"Ante Zizic stood out once again for the winners, as he finished the game with 18 points and 6 rebounds, followed by double-digit performances by Will Clyburn (17p.) and Scottie Wilbekin (11 p.)."

Physically and athletically, Zizic reminds me some of Cole Aldrich. The way Zizic moves reminds me of Aldrich. The athleticism, the quickness, the leaping ability reminds me of Aldrich.

Clearly more comfortable in the post on offense than Aldrich. Plus looks an inch or so taller.

How many white seven-footers are left for us to compare him to in this thread?


Great words from a great man

I've compared him to Al Horford and Kendrick Perkins several times. Both in terms of body type, run gate and playing style.

Well now that you mention it, Tom Boerwinkle comes to mind.

I like the K.Perkins one. The time it takes them to gather and jump. Perk like Aldrich too.

Zizic less athletic than Valanciunas and Valanciunas is a below par NBA athlete at center.

There's been so much gushing about this kid, it's nice to see his deficiencies noted.  So, what I am hearing (and seeing in film) is that Zizic is a below-average athlete who can't shoot from the outside and his inside game is based on power, not quickness.  He doesn't sound like the kind of front-court player who will fit into Brad's system.

He can pass, he has decent touch from the outside, he is good at running the break. He needs time to take off, but that doesnt mean he is slow. There's a reason the staff (Brad included mind you) likes him, along with the scouts and several teams.

Today Zizic and Blatt will go up against CSKA Moscow, last champion in Euroleague. Darüşşafaka badly needs a win in Moscow to stay alive in the playoff race. Game is 20 minutes later (12.00 Boston time I guess)

Not sure where you get the "below-average athlete".  He certainly doesn't appear that to me.  Much more athletic than a guy like Perkins.  And he does appear to have a decent mid range game, and certainly is a good free throw shooter.

Looking at the ample video materials provided in this thread, Zizic looks neither particularly quick closing up space under the basket, or particularly explosive getting off the ground for rebounds or blocks. I haven't seen anything that suggests he's particularly agile, either. I think the below-average athlete is probably fair.

Here's what Draft Express has to say about him:

NBA teams may wonder what it is that separates Zizic as a starting caliber prospect, as there is nothing extraordinary about his size, length, athleticism or skill-set, even if there's nothing particularly deficient about any of those areas either. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Ante-Zizic-68722/ ©DraftExpress

So I'd guess average is probably appropriate.
