Roko Prkacin would be an interesting addition to the Chicago Bulls organization.

Roko Prkacin, 18, is a 6-foot-8, 220-pound power forward out of Croatia. He played in the ABA Adriatic across seas and recorded an impressive stat sheet in his first year there.

He averaged 13.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game last season. Even more impressive, he shot just under 50 percent from the field and 40 percent from deep on 10 field goal attempts per game.

According to Daniel Greenberg, the Bulls are in talks with Prkacin during the NBA combine, a plus to the combine being in Chicago.

He is projected late first round in some mock drafts but would be an excellent pick-up for the Bulls at the eighth spot in the second round.

Prkacin is a positionless player. His height does not affect his athleticism and his ability to drive the rim or create space for himself to show off his terrific shooting stroke.

He is a defensive utility, having the ability the defend any position on the court. He has excellent strength and reaches to defend other players on the court and in the post, which is a specific need for the Bulls.

The added bonus to Prkacin’s game is his creative passing ability. While his assist numbers are low, they are deceptive to his ability to pass the ball. Prkacin’s versatility on both sides of the court is appealing. Could he fall to the second round?
