Another late blossomer. Hakan Köseoğlu might very well give new meaning for “pushing the ball.” He is very fast with the ball and can change direction rapidly. If the defense sleeps on him he can bring the ball in 2 seconds and score a lay-up in the third. His shot is erratic allowing defenses to collapse on him to take away his penetration. He is maturing in his ball distribution but still needs work. He is a very alert defender though, forcing many turnovers.
