His team (Darussafaka) is in green & white, naturally.   ;D

Very exciting that we have a young guy like that stashed overseas.  Loved that up and under move he made.

His release doesn't look bad. If he can shoot, could he be like Al Horford?
They didn't "lose" Teague -- they got rid of him because Schroder made him redundant. Other than that, they replaced Horford with Howard. Injuries or no injuries, our roster is not any more superior than it was last season. Probably less.

It's good, and his free throw percentage is good too. I have hopes that he could be a good mid-range shooter in the next couple years. By his mid-twenties, maybe he could even add range out to the 3.

No, I don't see him being like Al Horford.  Al has a very versatile game.  I'm just hoping for Dale Davis with Zizic.

I've said this several times, but worth repeating: He plays a lot like a young Perk, only a better shooter, especially at the foul line. Both have long arms, low post game, similar gate, and not much lift, but great at boxing out and positioning for rebounds.

I think he would be a an improvement over Amir Johnson in our starting line up right now, although in fairness it is hard to tell given he has not faced NBA players yet.

Really shows a good left hand, and some decent spin moves. Over time he should be able to develop a 3 point shot, in which event he would fit splendidly in Brad's system.

May be the reason Danny is not too anxious to give up a lot of assets for someone like Cousins, knowing that this kid could step in pretty soon as the starting 5.  Maybe I'm over-hyping here, but am quite encouraged by what I have seen.

Really excited about what this kid could become. One thing I'm starting to notice is the form on his jumpshot. It's very solid. He just turned 20. Four years from now he could be shooting the 3 while rebounding and banging down low like a maniac.

Also I'm liking the notion of him learning under David Blatt.

Today Darüşşafaka Doğuş beat Büyükçekmece 97-75. Büyükçekmece is at 10th place out of 16 teams in Turkish League.

Zizic played with 14 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks in the first half. He finished with 16p/8r/3b in 27 minutes. He shot 5/7 from 2P, and 6/6 from the line.

I think he moves a little more fluidly than Perk did, but otherwise you're spot on.

There was some question about Zizic's minutes given the level of play and the fact that he's backing up an established player in Semih Erden.

12/30/17: Zizic 16m, Erden 22m
1/2/17: Zizc 13m, Erden 24m
1/5/17: Zizic 24m, Erden 10m

1/7/17: unknown, but Erden had 0 points and Zizic had 14/6/2.

Looks like the kid is trending up. Good sign for a young player.

If he can do this at Euroleague/Turkish League level it's hard to see him not being able to at least take over Zeller's minutes next year.


Great words from a great man

Impressive. Good to see him succeeding in a decent league under an NBA coach.
