It seems almost unthinkable that Jagla will soon be knocking on the door of veteran status but the fresh-faced big-man still has plenty to prove at this level.
He has had a mixed career both at club level and with Germany – superb and disappointing in almost equal measures.
He played so-so at EuroBasket 2009 and his poor shooting percentages perhaps does not reflect his overall influence on the team and the fact he noticeably picked up his work-rate and rebounding.
An experienced and mobile big man with skills, he likes to pop out and shoot the ball from the perimeter.
A lot will depend on Jagla having a better shooting tournament than his last one.
He is a really good offensive rebounder which is quite surprising given he likes to shoot from outside and so he needs to follow up shots to get rebounds which he often does in a great way.
At club level he has had experience in the big leagues such as Spain and Turkey while last year he played in the Asseco Prokom team that did surprisingly well in EuroLeague.
He has just not quite convinced at National Team level as he should – maybe now the time has arrived to really lead the frontcourt.
