Summary: Notes: Udrih has been a bit of a journeyman. He's played in Russia, Israel and Slovenia over the past two seasons. Most recently, he was picked up by Briel Milano where he's averaging 10.8 ppg, 2.3 apg. He's 22 years old so he's automatically eligible for the draft this year. He averaged a camp high 6.5 apg at the Chicago pre-draft camp.

Positives: He's a left with a solid handle on every aspect of the game. He doesn't do any one thing great, but does everything well. He's an accomplished shooter, especially in the mid range game. He's has solid point guard skills, especially in the open court. He's a good, but not great athlete. He's pretty quick. Knows how to score. Has plenty of experience.

Negatives: His three point shot, especially from the NBA line is still a little shaky. Defensively he's not the best. The knock on him for the past few years was that he was more of a two than a one.

Insider projection: Udrih was a little under the radar screen for a couple of reasons. One, he kept jumping from team to team each year. Two, many scouts believed that he was more of a combo guard than a real one. He went a long way toward disproving that at the Chicago pre-draft camp. He helped himself more than any other player in Chicago. He could sneak into the first round to a team like Indiana, but more likely he'll be a solid second rounder.
