ANALYSIS: Veremeenko is not exactly a household name in American basketball circles, but NBA scouts have been following his career for years due to some impressive performances at the junior level in Russia. Veremeenko has been playing well in the Russian League for four seasons now, and he has a high skill level, capable of playing both forward spots. For the past two seasons, he has played for Dynamo St. Petersburg, an improving team which also plays in the highly competitive FIBA Europe Cup, a league that is comprised of top-level clubs throughout Europe which is just one level below the Euroleague, the top competition in Europe. Like many Russian big men, he shoots the ball accurately from the perimeter, but is also an athletic rebounder. Some scouts feel he could eventually be a force in the low post, but he'll have to gain significant strength to operate down low in the NBA. With Andrei Kirilenko having reached star status and young Russians Sergei Monia and Viktor Khryapa also making their way in the NBA, Veremeenko would love to be the next from his country to break into the NBA.
