      Another signing for Craig…Luke Tarlac out of Serbia. 6’8″ small forward. Played last season in the Serbian league. Averaged 8.1 ppg/2.8 rpg. Former teammate of Lazar Stefanovic, so I’m assuming that’s how he and Utah got on each others’ radars.

      We’ll see what this brings, but he seems like a 2nd or 3rd guy off the bench type to me.

      The name reminds me of the old Luka Drca fan club that was quite the rage at one time.

      “Glue guy of the team, doing the work on the defensive end. Luka has elite defensive instincts, especially good rotations and help from the weak side, resulting in some great blocks. Great hips and can drop low, has good reactions and great lateral movement. Versatile defender, capable of guarding most players on perimeter. Maybe he was too impatient in some on-ball defense situations and going directly for a steal and not waiting and defending the opponent cleanly. This resulted in him losing the balance and the offensive player getting past him but otherwise very good on ball defense. Has good footwork and can go around the screens fluidly. Had a minor offensive role on this tournament, made some good drives but hasn’t shot many shots from distance so hard to evaluate his offense. In past tournaments he was a pretty poor shooter and probably still needs to put more work on his shot and become a better, more consistent shooter and offensive player overall.” – From March 19, 2020

      Probably the best defensive player on the tournament. High lockdown defender potential. Great athletic capabilities combined with very good anticipation, great lateral movements and quick legs & hands. Was the tournament best in steals and blocks. His movements look very fluid, has good body and length for his position. Has good instincts in defense and his rotations from the helpside are rarely late. In offense he has still a lot of work to do. Struggles with his shot – from distance and from free throw line. Makes bad reads – doesn’t know when to shoot or when to penetrate. A lot of room for improvements in his offball movements too. Solid finisher around the rim, especially on open court. Showed some good passes and court vision on drives but still not on the highest level.” From December 9, 2019
