He can play (in EU atleast) on PG to PF.
Its pure blasphemy to even mention Bjelica in same sentence with Kukoc.Kukoc was legit 6th man in one of the best NBA teams in that time.
Bjelica inherited Teletovic position and role in Caja Laboral and now he is still behind him.Not to mention Teletovic was more psychical and better shooter in Europe(though very streaky) and even won few awards in Spain(Spanish cup MVP and 1st ACB team).Same guy now struggles in NBA, airballs open 3's and collecting DNP-CD in Nets.
I just wanna say, don't get your hopes high about him, he might surprise but its more likely he wont.
Kukoc might be even the best 6th man to even play this game, and I can stand by that, I am just making comparison.
Bjelica has ball handling that is impressive for a big man, he can play on forward positions, he can play minutes as SG. He is all arounder, rare and pure one with impressive height.
However his major pro is his major con, he doesn't excel much at any of position he plays, he plays SF cause his body fits there, not because he is excelling on it, he plays on Mirza's place because there's player on SF position that plays(as far as I know it was San Emeterio) great also. Bjelica is still uncut jewel and young and shouldn't be judged too harshly.
