Ahead of them all are the starting bigs combination of Stanko Barac and Mirza Teletovic. Former Pacers draft pick Barac has been entrusted with a bigger role, and charged with the task of replacing Splitter, a task to which he has responded fairly well. Barac is no Splitter, but he's nonetheless a good player in his own right; he can shoot from mid-range, has added occasional three point range, runs the pick-and-roll (which is mandatory in a Caja Laboral big man), rebounds, and is a defensive presence, if only through size alone. He can also take his man off the dribble, although it helps greatly if his man is slower than him, which is not often the case. Alongside him, Mirza Teletovic plays the stretch four, the athletic big forward who can shoot up to 25 feet away and perform tidy chase-down blocks, like a past-his-prime-but-not-yet-dead Eddie Griffin. Despite the occasionally impressive defensive play, Teletovic is not much of a defensive presence; he probably could be, but he simply doesn't try as hard on that end as he does on offense, something also reflected in his poor rebounding numbers. Nevertheless, when he's engaged, he's a versatile offensive player, who can drive, post and shoot the ball from outside. (If he's not engaged, he'll just take jumpers.)

Stanko Barac (39th pick, 2007)

- Barac is playing for Spanish team Caja Laboral, and thus was also covered at length in the recent Euroleague round-up:

Former Pacers draft pick Barac has been entrusted with a bigger role, and charged with the task of replacing Splitter, a task to which he has responded fairly well. Barac is no Splitter, but he's nonetheless a good player in his own right; he can shoot from mid-range, has added occasional three point range, runs the pick-and-roll (which is mandatory in a Caja Laboral big man), rebounds, and is a defensive presence, if only through size alone. He can also take his man off the dribble, although it helps greatly if his man is slower than him, which is not often the case.


Since that time, Caja Laboral have been knocked out of the Euroleague, losing their quarter final series 3-1 to Maccabi Tel-Aviv. In the series, Barac averaged 11.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 19 minutes per game, but rather screwed the pooch in the series finale, recording 7 points, 2 rebounds and 5 turnovers in a 22 point drubbing. For all his improvements, Barac's style of play still does not behoove the new fangled NBA.

- Stanko Barac

Barac, whose rights are owned by the Pacers, is playing for Caja Laboral in Spain's ACB. They're the team that used to be known as Tau Ceramica. Barac tends to get a wriggle on in the ACB; in only 11.8 minutes a game, he averages 7.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 fouls per game, slowing to a more sedate 5.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 fouls in 14.8 minutes per game in the Euroleague. The number of minutes played isn't ideal, but when you've got Tiago Splitter in front of you, it makes sense.
