Yeah, videos are very hard to come by for him, and the timezones make it impossible to follow euro games. I sometimes find snippets of information on Twitter, but this has been a tough guy to casually scout.
Ok, Zach is pretty awesome, we should use capspace to give him a full max next off-season.
We should still trade Lauri, Otto, Young and Sato for the best we can get.

Found a YouTube channel where you can watch his full games from this season. Haven't checked if they're all there, but at least most of them seem to be. I'll send you the link.

He would be VERY valuable as a legit 4th big in a few years. Gafford has been a disappointment this year-lots of promise last year but he seems worse.

Looks like a lighter, leaner Lauri that can play make. More off the dribble and his passing looks really good.

Maybe he is the Lauri replacement. Won't be surprised if he comes over this summer.

Not sure about RealGM's guidelines on this tbh. It's not like the ABA uploaded them there for everyone to see. I can send you the link via PM though.

Is it me or does he look like a very solid NBA player?

He's very confident rebounding and bringing the ball up.

Could he be our Daniel Theis?

If you want to see Marko highlights watch Aba league youtube chanell with full games or shortened highlights. Marko is playing alongside former Gonzaga center Petrusev. They usually play in sunday afternoon game that is early morning in Chicago. Malcom Cazalon French swingman potential second round pick is also in that team. Simonovic can play but he needs to improve his body and athlethicism to be playable on Nba level. If he lower his body fat and becomes 10-20% faster,stronger,explossive he could be upgrade, comparing him to guys like Gafford,Felicio and Kornet.

Just to be clear, France played without Nba, Euroleague and Eurocup players. Basically French b team, but it is still good performance by Marko.

I love the draft and stash 2nd round pick strategy. Sure there's little analysis available on Marko. And the highlights we do see are against competition that I don't quite know is any good or not. But it's a lottery ticket that you can dream about for a year or two after the pick is made. AK's history obviously makes that lotto ticket even more fun to dream about.

He is playing against good competition. Most of the teams he played against would beat most of the Ncaa teams. His team Mega have quality to play with best Ncaa teams toe to toe.

@ABA_League: Even though his national team suffered a close defeat by France tonight, Marko Simonović of @KKMegaBasket had a great performance himself:

✅ 16 points
✅ 7 rebounds
✅ 2 assists
✅ 2 steals
✅ Valuation 20

Well done! https://t.co/2rfkhMkCWT

I can't wait until this guy joins our team next year and replaces one of the 7 footer stiff from GarPax era.
