Articles about Kosta Perovic

The frontcourt is no shallower. Fran Vazquez, Boniface N'Dong and Erazem Lorbek all returned this season, and added to the bunch was Kosta Perovic, who transferred in from Valencia. Between the four, Barcelona can offer every kind of look. Vazquez and N'Dong are the big and athletic interior defenders; Perovic is even bigger than them both, whose size alone can serve as a deterrent. On offense, N'Dong and Vazquez can run the court, as well as the pick and roll, and make their mid-range jumpshots. Perovic can create around the basket and has footwork and touch, if not much speed or strength. Lorbek can do both; he can create in the post, step out for the mid range jumpshot, and drive on slower opposing bigs, armed with the best mid-range game of the four. And if Barcelona need a small ball four, they can turn to Terence Morris.

- Kosta Perovic

Former Warriors centre Kosta Perovic was bought out of his NBA contract early so that he could return to the continent that suits his slow ass the best. He has spent the last two years with Valenica, where he (usually) starts and provides a good early scoring punch. Because, for all of Perovic's athleticism and strength problems, he can still definitely score the ball. On the season, Perovic is averaging 9.6 points and 3.9 rebounds in 19 minutes per game in the Eurocup, alongside 21.1 mpg, 8.7 ppg and 5.0 rpg in the ACB. He averages 0.9 blocks per game in both competitions through size alone.
