Sleeper Report: Vasa Pusica (Northeastern)

By James Blackburn

Game Scouted: Virginia Tech vs Northeastern (Charleston Classic)

Vasa Pusica, PG, 6-5, RS SR

Strengths

PG with good size who can handle it well with either hand. Pressure doesnt bother him at all. Terrific shooter off the catch and off the dribble- quick release. Shoots the 3 ball with great efficiency.

Cerebral player who understands the game, doesnt get rattled. Poised. High IQ guy. Pretty good in the low/mid post where he can score it and shoot it over double teams.

Good court vision, keeps head up at all times. Has good size that allows him to see over the defense. Unselfish- good passer. Makes right reads on PnR plays.

Can create his own offense and offense for others- good playmaker. Showed good ability to create his own shot off the dribble. Has a great crossover move.

Excellent touch on floater/ shooting. Good footwork.

Weaknesses

Underwhelming physically and athletically. This tends to hurt him more on the defensive end than offensively. Does struggle to finish in traffic. Length and athleticism give him trouble. Doesnt have elite speed to get by defenders. 

Overall

From Serbia where he is a member of the National Team. Was Northeastern’s top scorer last season and leads them in scoring so far this year with over 20 ppg. 

With his passport, he could play high level Europe right away. Will get some NBA interest and should be a PIT guy.
