Perhaps the strongest, most explosive and skilled Next Gen athlete (in practice and in the scrimmage) was 15 year old, 6’10 (in shoes) Luka Samanic from Zagreb, Croatia. With a reported 33.5 inch maximum vertical leap, Luka Samanic also showed shooting range as well as a good feel for the game on offense. Born in September of 2000, the son of a former Pro European basketball player Luka currently plays with Regal Barcelona. We’re sure he will be one to follow over the coming years and wouldn’t be surprised to hear his name called in a future NBA Draft!
