  • Notes on Bostjan Nachbar
    Along the lines of Vladimir Radmanovic, Peja Stojakovic and Hedo Turkoglu, Bostjan Nachbar is European small forward who can shoot the rock. Nachbar joined the Italian club Benetton Treviso for the 2000-2001 season, playing sparingly while averaging 4.2 points and roughly a board and a half a contest. In 20 games of the Euroleague in 2001-2002 however, Nachbar showed improvement, upping his scoring average to 12.2 while grabbing 3.6 boards and 1.4 assists.
    Strengths of Bostjan Nachbar
    Good all-around skills Has a nice stroke on his jumper, but possibly not the range of a Stojakovic or Turkoglu. Excels at driving to the hoop and taking it strong to the rack, and can find the open man as well in those situations. Versatile enough to play possibly three positions. Has a chance to be a very special offensive player.
    Weaknesses of Bostjan Nachbar
    Will need to add more strength. Defense is not his strongest suit, even in Europe. Must become more aggressive on the defensive end to not be a liability there in the NBA. It will cost a million bucks to buy out his contract, and depending on where he goes in the draft, it could keep him from the NBA next season.
    Nachbar on the Rockets?
    Nachbar may be tailor-made to fit the Rockets needs at the three. Houston desperately needs a guy who can run with the speedy guards and knock down the long-range jumper. Rice can hit threes but can't run. Terence Morris can run, but can't hit a jay. Nachbar's versatility could make him a tempting pick at #15, if he's still on the board.
