NBA projection
Todorovic is the classic draft-and-stash player. He's big, agile, mobile and has the potential to be a solid NBA power forward or center down the road. His potential is strong enough for him to be selected by the middle of the second round if he elects to keep his name in the draft.

2012-2013 Season
Todorovic was unable to crack Barcelona's loaded lineup for any significant minutes this season.  Last year he showed his ability at the LEB-Silver level with Joventut when he averaged 15.8 ppg and 8.2 rpg and was in the league leaders in points, rebounds and blocked shots.

Key statistics
2.4 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 0.6 bpg, 7.4 mpg, .560 2PT, .591 FT (Euroleague)
2.9 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 0.3 bpg, 6.6 mpg, .600 2PT, .632 FT (Spain)

Cool statistic
Todorovic ended his Euroleague season with his best performance of the year scoring 11 points and grabbing four rebounds in a 74-73 loss to CSKA Moscow.

Reminds me of...

What Insiders Say
Giovanni Conte, Basket Caffe
"He is one of the most interesting big man of his age. In a European powerhouse like F.C. Barcelona Regal he doesn’t find a lot of time, but when he played more minutes he showed great stuff. He is smart and shrewd in the paint, he rolls with timing after the pick, and has the strength to finish in traffic and to grab offensive rebounds. Right now he isn't athletic enough  for the NBA standard, and his free throw percentage is wavering. He may be more suitable for Euroleague than the NBA."

Os Davis, BallinEurope.com
"With FC Barcelona, Todorovic spent much of the 2012-13 season buried on the bench, averaging about seven minutes per game in Euroleague and the ACB. At 6’11”, he plays well with good shooting range at center but might benefit from some weight training (he’s officially listed at 240 pounds but this seems a bit high). With a bit of a light resume at the professional club level, he might not hear his name called on draft day at all in 2013."

Sam Chadwick, Prospects in Europe
“A solid 6' 11" PF/C from Barcelona, a solid rebounder both offensively & defensively he has performed exceptionally well in the ACB when given the chance, similar to Abrines. His minutes were inconsistent at times but understandable for a young center in one of the top leagues in the world. He produced well in his limited minutes. He could be a good defender in the NBA."
