   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The NBA Prospects Of The Unsigned NBA Draft Picks

Edin Bavcic (56th pick, 2006)

- Picked directly after Ugboaja and directly before Mavrokefalidis, Bavcic was drafted at the tail end of the Draft Any Tall Euros You Can Find phase, after averaging 4/3 in the Adriatic League. And since that date - as was the case before that date - Bavcic has not done much.

The finesse big man, who looks a bit like Ronnie O'Sullivan's overtired Bulgarian cousin, was in the Euroleague last year with Olimpija Ljubljana, and put in a full season of work; this year, however, work has been harder to find. Bavcic signed with Serie A club Enel Brindisi in the offseason, but the contract was terminated by mutual consent after only four games, in which he'd averaged 4 points and 4.5 rebounds in 20 minutes. Bavcic then moved to the Ukraine to play for Khimik, where he averaged 9.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 fouls in 25 minutes per game. And then last month, Bavcic moved again, picked up by Greek club Aris as a replacement for Dejan Borovnjak. Thus far he has totalled 33 points and 21 rebounds in 38 combined minutes across two games.

His Aris career is certainly off to a strong start. The rest of his career, however, has not gone so well. Bavcic is a jumpshooting big man who doesn't have consistent three point range, and whose defense is done via the foul. It's not a great combination, and the NBA door is closed.

No word on whether the unibrow remains. Even if it does, though, Bavcic no longer has basketball's best unibrow. Nor does Quincy Douby. No, that honour now goes to Kentucky commit, Anthony Davis.

Chances of making the NBA expressed as an arbitrary percentage: 0%. (Bavcic's chances, that is. Davis's chances are 100%.)
