I've seen 6' 7 and 6' 8 on most sites, would be great if he's really 6' 11", but i'll assume he's somewhere in between.

Looks like he can shoot a bit, let the Vlad and Marko comparisons commence!

Turning 21 years of age this month.

Does he have 4yrs of eligibility? (Not like it matters much in this day and age)

Welcome to Stas. Don’t really know too much about him, not sure what his height is, lol.

He’s 13th guy and most likely a project and warm practice body. We’ll see if he amounts to anything more than that.

Sivka will be an older prospect, with him turning 21 in late June, but he will have the same four years of eligibility as everyone else. I really like the idea of a 24-year-old big man someday. I would like to note that for his birthday, most sites have it as June 26th or 27th, but RealGM has it listed as September 16th. Either way, he is 21 during his freshman year.

He's played Euro pro ball...skilled.

The international connection - need to get some Slovenia flags up in the student section!

Thinking he's gotta be a legit 6"9... he could of grown since they last measured him when he was 18 or 19 so he could be 6'10 or 6'11. What's really interesting in the videos is for his body type he is very agile and quick and moves well with and without the ball on both sides, he can get to the rim and can guard faster guys/guards as well. There are plenty of 6"9-6"11 guys in the P5's that can't move like him.

Let Curran work some magic and this guy could be special.

Patriot8 - Any intel on how we got this guy.... seems like it came out of left field. Did any of our coaches have a connection or hop a plane to Slovenia recently?

Good get, I’m guessing this is a bit of a project with high upside, nothing to really go off of here. This is what you are supposed to do with a 13th scholly. Glad we filled out the roster. We’ve got the dudes, now time for Tony to kick their asses all summer and make them into a team.
 
I watched the video. Looks like a great get with the 13th scholarship. Agree that he moves very well on both ends of the court for a big man. Gotta think Euro Pro ball is a better training ground than High Schools and AAU ball for that last slot. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a few minutes a game spelling our 4s and 5s. Great swing for the fences by Tony and Co. If it pays off, its a steal.

6'11, 80% FT, positive AST:TO, low foul ratio. Seems like a steal to me. Hopefully it all translates. Could see him fitting right in with extended minutes if need be if someone is out a couple games. Great way to round out the roster.
