A combo forward with a deadly shooting stroke, Bostjan Nachbar is a decent athlete, being very smooth and mobile but not especially quick or explosive. Has very good scoring instincts and excellent size for the small forward position, which makes him a solid mismatch threat. His game is clearly centred on his perimeter jump shot, which boasts excellent form and consistency, with a high and quick release. Although he prefers to play small forward, in the past few seasons he was more often used as a four and was quite successful in this role. For instance, he was the second-best scorer in this past season's Euroleague, scoring 16.1 points-per-game at the "4" position. With Erazem Lorbek missing this summer, it is likely we will see this former NBA player at power forward.
