Basha is a bit of a smaller forward at 5'11 and 187lbs, but he doesn't play lilike He's undersized. Basha is a hard-hard-working and highly engaged winger with strong offensive awareness.

Basha Is well recepeted by most top public scouts, as high as 18th by EliteProspects. (I myself might be highest on Basha, who I have ranked at 16th. I'll cover that in the next slide).

What makes Basha so intriguing isn't just his offensive ability, but his ability to create opportunities on a consistent basis, Basha is a player that never stops working, each shift you can rely on him to try to make an impact where he can.
