Dzanan Musa is the second-ranked European prospect born in 1999.
The six-foot-eight shooter is very experienced for someone his age, logging his first high level pro minutes a couple of years ago, when he became the ninth-youngest player in EuroLeague history to make his debut as a 16-year-old.
That season, his first with Croatian club Cedevita Zagreb, Musa was not a regular rotation player and spent some time with the junior squad as well.
Now a full time pro over the last year-and-a-half, the 18-year-old is averaging 22.1 minutes per game in 41 appearances for a Cedevita team that has won 30 of its 42 games this season.
The level of competition he’s faced is mid-level. The Eurocup is the second-tier continental league, behind the EuroLeague, and Next-Step Basketball ranks the Adriatic League only the ninth domestic league in Europe, while the Croatian A-1 Liga is unranked.
He started 2017-2018 pretty hot, coming off a summer where he led the Bosnia & Herzegovina Senior National Team to five wins in eight games in the 2019 FIBA World Cup of Basketball Pre-Qualifiers – averaging 31.7 points per 40 minutes on 70.8% true-shooting.
Through 41 games this season, Musa has averaged 22 points per 40 minutes on 61.9% true-shooting. Though he’ll stop the offense every once in a while to run a pick-and-roll, Musa is getting most of his touches on the side of the floor via hand-offs and ball reversals, as 45.5% of his 329 shots have been three-point attempts.
Musa is for the most part a gunner because he hasn’t shown a lot of development in terms of athleticism and skill level. He has a thin 187-pound frame in the context of his six-foot-eight height and struggles to get by his man one-on-one. His work in the pick-and-roll isn’t particularly advanced either.
On the other end, Musa is hidden off the ball but has flashed some potential of being able to make plays on the ball and switch onto bigger players.
