Is this the next Kristaps Porzingis? Are we allowed to say that yet?
Robert Bobroczky is a 7-foot-6 Romania center for U16 Stella Azzurra in Rome. He has been on NBA radars for a number of years now, reaching 7-foot-4 as a 13-year-old. Sometimes, the kids who hit puberty early fizzle out when others match their height. No one is matching Bobroczky's height.
Based on the eye test, he is raw. He lacks muscle, and for some reason, his head and neck look disproportionate with the rest of his body. He moves awkward and slow. But there is no denying his height, and he seems to be working on his bank shot and defensive presence.
Stella Azzurra is an amateur club in the third division of Serie B. Andrea Bargnani played for the senior team during his late teens.
So much for European players flying under the radar nowadays. This is a YouTube video of Bobroczky from a year and a half ago.
Let's call Bobroczky a 2020 lottery prospect.
