He is projected to be TOP 10 pick in 2010 NBA draft though, let's see how this kid develops

I saw him in the Nike Hoop Summit a few days ago, really impressive kid. I've seen a lot of Dirk comparisons, and I don't want to judge the comparison as far as playing style off of just one game that was basically an all-star game, but he's FAR more athletic than Dirk. I don't know if the 7' listing is legit, but he looks to be a solid 6'9 at least and the kid runs the floor like a gazelle. I'd like to see him against players who at least have experience beyond high school/AAU but he's a really intriguing guy.

And anyone with info give me Stanko Barac updates! All I can see is stats and boxscores, but he looks solid. Does he have a legitimate NBA future?
