Notes:
Plays a point-forward role because of his height and ability to handle the ball, which makes it hard to nail down a definitive position for him in the NBA...Over the course of 16 games in the Euro League with Fenerbahce Ulker in 2008-09, Preldzic was not much of a scorer as he dropped in 7.3 ppg, shooting a mere 35.8 percent from the field in the process...What hurt the youngster the most was the lack of perimeter accuracy which translated into just 24.5 percent...Perhaps too aggressive for his own good at times, Preldzic also averaged nearly as many turnovers per game (2.1) as he did assists (2.5)...Definitely a talented player for the European League, but transitioning to the NBA could prove difficult.
