One of the biggest Balkan prospects born 2003, Duje Brala, continues hard work and full dedication towards improvement. Brala is not having great season only in numbers, but he has grown as a player in all fields: advanced ball handling, rebounding, 1on1 game, defensive efforts and above all – shooting.
Strong elements in Brala’s game are centered around good combination of skill, game understanding and physical profile. He has great size, strength, and ability to cover multiple positions, while being quick enough. His frame has lot of room for filling up, while he is still in very young age.
Combination of skills for Duje are vast: he is dominant in ball handling, ISO situations, has already elite first step and ability to beat opponents in many different ways. This season was used for polishing shooting mechanics and improving decision making in tough situations.
Duje Brala averages 19 ppg, 7.7 rpg and 3 apg for only 20 minutes per game in season so far, with specially impressive showing in the big Croatian derby against Cibona with 30 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for only 24 minutes on the floor.
Keep it up Duje!
