A year ago as a 17 year old playing up on the Bulgarian national team at the FIBA Under 18 Championships Vezenkov opened up some eyes with his play. At 6-foot-8 and 200 pounds, the skinny forward put up 16.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while shooting 47 percent overall including 39 percent from three point range.
This came on the heels of Vezenkov leading the FIBA Under 16 Championships in 2011 with 27.1 points per game and also adding 9.9 rebounds while playing against his age appropriate competition.
Vezenkov who is a lefty, is said to be a skilled forward who likes to play from the mid-range and out. He is a very good shooter who can really pass the ball and has a good feel for the game.
