Alessandro Gentile - 53rd pick, 2014
Left Milan after five years for a short unsuccessful stint with Panathinaikos and a shorter, more unsuccessful stint with Hapoel Jerusalem. Apparently open to a two-way contract, but this was a very poor year for him, and his already poor outside scoring got even worse. Needs a rebound year to fulfil power guard potential.

   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The Eurocup Final Four

[...] Everyone else is considerably younger. Serbian prospect Stefan Markovic starts at point guard, and has recorded quite an interesting stat line thus far on the Eurocup season; 27.8 mpg, 5.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 4.9 apg, 1.8 spg. Pass first indeed. In classic Serbian fashion, Markovic is big for a point guard (6'5) and does the vast majority of what he does through pick and roll sets, unable to regularly create or hit his own shot but very capable of doing so for others, while doing enough defensively. Another draft prospect, and one of the best young Italians alive today, is swingman Alessandro Gentile, who is getting 18.8 minutes per game in the Eurocup despite not even being 18.8 years old. Gentile shoots 36.7 % from three point range, and takes three per game, a hint as to his intent. Standing at 6'6 tall, he can always get the shot off, too. But the shot is streaky, and Gentile is worryingly disinterested in doing anything else but shoot and score. Gentile can't dribble, doesn't pass, and puts forth scant little defensive effort, too slow to have any impact when he does. He complains a lot and doesn't have encouraging body language. Bit of a diva, it appears. But at that ages, he can still grow out of it. He's certainly being given every opportunity to do so.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
