[...] Everyone else is considerably younger. Serbian prospect Stefan Markovic starts at point guard, and has recorded quite an interesting stat line thus far on the Eurocup season; 27.8 mpg, 5.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 4.9 apg, 1.8 spg. Pass first indeed. In classic Serbian fashion, Markovic is big for a point guard (6'5) and does the vast majority of what he does through pick and roll sets, unable to regularly create or hit his own shot but very capable of doing so for others, while doing enough defensively.

- Stefan Markovic
Hemofarm product Markovic is still with the team that brought him into the professional basketball world, albeit maybe not for much longer. He averaged 8.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 2.2 steals in Hemofarm's unusually short Eurocup campaign, alongside 9.2/4.0/4.8/1.5 in the Adriatic League. Rumours abound, however, that Markovic has agreed to sign with Benetton Treviso for next season. It makes sense; Benetton need a guard after the underwhelming performances of Daniel Hackett and the release of Gary Neal, and Markovic's ability has (presumably) outgrown Hemofarm's budget.
Of course, Markovic may yet be drafted. And that might change things.
