Bio: Born in Bosnia, Musa possesses great size on the wing and a natural knack for scoring the ball. He’s earned a large stake in his club’s success over the past couple years, competing at a young age and evolving into Cedevita’s second-leading scorer.

Strengths

• Decisive, efficient scorer with the ball in his hands. Shot 44% out of pick-and-rolls, 43.5% in spot-ups, 40% in isolation and 61.9% in transition. Totaled 47% from the field overall. Advanced for his age.

• Can shoot on the move. Comfortable pulling up off the dribble. Solid level of craftiness to his handle. Confident player.

• Known as an extremely competitive player who is highly motivated to make the NBA. Has become more unselfish as a passer.

Weaknesses

• Shot just 33.6% from three-point range. Overall shot selection needs to improve. Can shoot it, but will have to accept a smaller role where he can’t just kill possessions with long jumpers.

• Athletically average. Very thin and has a sort of hump in his back that affects posture. Has measured with a below-average 6’8” wingspan for his height. Unlikely to become a plus defender and may have trouble separating.

• Plays overly emotional at times and is still maturing into a pro. Somewhat of a divisive player in terms of attitude.

Highlights

Comparison: Wilson Chandler

Musa needs to refine his game and will have to figure out where he fits in but has the size and talent to become a supporting scorer on the wing. —
