Pero Antic was one of the stars of EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania and has only gotten better since. He is now an elite European player having helped Olympiacos to two Euroleague titles. This Greek club was a sensation on the continent and a fair part of the credit for this glory belongs to the power forward. He provides a big body and real power down low but also has a nice shooting touch from outside which he is quick to utilise. His defensive abilities are more noticeable though. He is very good at guarding the pick-n-roll and can be a key figure when his team plays zone on defence. These reasons, plus his great character as a fighter caught the attention of the Atlanta Hawks scouts, and Antic will make his NBA debut soon after the event in Slovenia.
