One of the biggest reasons for Arizona's success as a program has been player development, a coaching attribute that Lute Olson will forever be remembered by. How have UA players developed recently? We started with the 2002 class, and next we'll take a look at 2003.[details]
Strengths: Radenovic is an intriguing prospect because of the skill set he possesses for a player his size. He scores well inside, but is just as effective on the perimeter. He likes to work the pick and roll and step back for an outside shot. He runs the floor very well for a big man, and he knows how to excel in the transition game. Radenovic has the ability to handle the ball in the open court, and on occasion has been able to grab a rebound and take it the length of the floor. He is a very hardworking, fundamental player.
Weaknesses: At just under 230 pounds, Radenovic lacks the upper body strength needed to be a strong one-on-one post defender in the NBA. This has also hindered him at times on the glass, where he has been inconsistent. Despite being a solid ballhandler for a big man, Radenovic doesn't often take the ball to the basket. When he does drive, he struggles to finish in traffic and against stronger players.
Outlook: Radenovic will likely land towards the bottom of the second round where he projects as an NBA power forward. He has a nice skill set for a big man, but his lack of strength inside could be an issue. Expect him to be a eighth or ninth man somewhere.
