Nikoloz is still one of the most mentioned names in the NBA when "draft busts" are in discussion, but the 5th pick in the 2002 draft has since managed to establish an international career that has taken him to more exotic places than most players who will be at EuroBasket. After stints in the top leagues of Italy and Spain, he packed his bags and landed in Iran where he won the national title in 2012. In the past year he played in Lebanon and posted 17.9 points, 10.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks-a-night - something of a hint that Tskitishvili has found his comfort zone. A 2.12m combo forward that can shoot from outside is not a tool to be ignored, and with him on the floor Georgia could have one of the biggest line-ups in the championship.
