Nedovic stands out first and foremost thanks to his excellent physical tools, ranking as one of the very best athletes in European basketball. He measured 6-4 in shoes at the adidas EuroCamp in 2011, with a 41 inch vertical.
That’s from DraftExpress. Beyond that, he’s a 6’4 guard from Serbia who can get to the rim with a good first step. However, he’s not a great shooter, defender, or ball handler at this point, and still more of a tweener guard. Reports of his pre-draft interviews were great, potentially signifying that he’s mentally ready to improve his game and be coached to overcome his weaknesses. From what I’ve seen, he reminds me (in a positive frame of mind) of former Warrior Sarunas Marciulionis, as they’re both super athletic 6’4ish combo guards from eastern Europe. Marciulionis wasn’t a great shooter either, but he could really attack the basket and get to the line. “He plays strong” is how I’d describe him – he was a truly physical guard.

I’m not crazy am I? We can hope?
