Draft Notes

Nikola is a big, strong 6-8 guard/wing from Serbia who has an intriguing mix of play-making ability, shot making and size.

He’s got a rock solid frame for a young guard and can hold his own physically at higher levels of competition, even as a teenager.

Nikola is a good ball handler who can break his man down with the dribble and create space to get his shot. He’s got the height to shoot over the defense and a really nice shooting stroke. He’s not yet consistent from 3 or from the FT line but has good form and all the makings of a high level scorer.

Nikola isn’t the most explosive athlete (think more like a Joe Johnson than a Tracy McGrady) but should be able to add some vertical pop with more training.
