BIOGRAPHY: Preldzic is not a typical European swingman in the mold of Hedo Turkoglu and Peja Stojakovic, players who are known primarily
for their natural shooting abilities. Instead, the 21-year-old has been utilized mostly as a point forward for Fenerbahce
Ulker, the reigning Turkish League champions. With his excellent ball-handling skills, he's thrived in that role, but there
are other reasons why he's been confined to playing the role of a point guard - namely, his lack of bulk and a poor outside
shot. Preldzic is very skinny for a player his size and doesn't have a great first step, which makes getting to the rim difficult
and taking a pounding once in the paint even more debilitating. He shot just 35.8 percent from the floor with Fenerbahce last
seasons, including a dreadful 24.5 percent from beyond the arc. Defensively, he still has plenty of room for improvement.
Preldzic's long reach helps him get his hands in passing lanes, but his limited athletic ability limits him from being able
to guard many quicker players. His high basketball I.Q. will likely get Preldzic drafted late in the second round, but look
for a team to store him overseas for a few years so he can play regularly and give himself a better chance of sticking once
he reaches the NBA.
