By: @JLHemingwayPSB & @BrandonClayPSB Player Evaluations

Date: May 12, 2017
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Nike EYBL Session III (Cartersville, Ga.)

Koprivica is a finesse post player who is averaging 8ppg and 5rpg and shoots close to 70% from the field. Although he is a skill-based type player he can protect the lane. He is averaging over 1.5 blocks per game. He has not demonstrated range on his jumper and his 56% FT points to needed improvement with his shooting. He has a frame that can put on good weight in the future.

Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: NBPA Top 100 Evals (Charlottesville, Virginia)

Koprivca didn’t showcase a polished skill set in this eval but has all of the physical tools to be a bigtime star. He has length / size at an early age and was willing to get up and down in transition.
