General overview- January 2023
Nikola Karalic is a tall, lanky perimeter player. Because of his long strides he is a good slasher: he gets to the rim at will and finishes with both hands. He is a good ball handler: his center of gravity is still tall, and he has knee valgus, but once he reaches the final stages of his growth he'll be able to put on display his dribbling repertoire. He is creative and brave. His shooting release is too slow, and his shooting base is a bit too wide, but he can create looks for himself. Thanks to his soft touch he can score with runners and floaters. Nearly unstoppable in transitions and fastbreaks. On the defensive end, he currently feels way more comfortable acting as a help-side defender thanks to his wingspan and instincts than chasing ball-handlers.
