I've seen him play twice with the youth NT and he played very good. I believe he can become a very good point guard in the future. But for his age he already is a very good player. If he keeps developing I think that he'll play for a big club in the future and he will be a star at the NT

@Black Urum: Zahariev is still a Euroleague level prospect, he just needs to work on his free-throw shooting and his consistency, he is really talented and has the size and skill for being a good combo guard. So far in the Bulgarian League he averages 12.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.1 TO in 30.8 minutes per game. His shooting 42% for 2 points and 54% from the charity stripe.

In the U20 league in Bulgaria he averages 11.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 2.9 TO and 3.3 steals in 27 minutes per game, along with 60% for 2 points, 42% for 3 and 91% from the FT.
And another Bulgarian, named George Funtarov, he's born in 1993 and is 200cm/6'7''. He grew up with Lukoil Academic in Bulgaria, but now is in his first year in the US, playing for Free State High School in Lawrence, Kansas. Really athletic and long, hard working, just needs to improve his shooting and put some weight on. He can definitely develop into a NCAA D1 prospect if he keeps doing his thing.

Dario Saric is a extremely talented player and he'll become a very good player in Europe and the NBA. the same goes for Dino Butorac. They will be the stars of Croatian basketball in a couple of years. Mario Hezonja is also an extremely talented player. He'll also be a very good player in the future.
I haven't seen as much games of Butorac as I have seen of Saric but I think Saric will be a better player. Butorac is older and he's a very good player for his age. But if you see Saric play against guys that are much older than him he's still one of the best.
Butorac at the moment has the advantage that he's older and has more "experience". But all three guys(Saric, Butorac and Hezonja) will be the stars in the future
