There has been much talk of whom the Milwaukee Bucks will select in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft. However, Milwaukee gets a chance to add a solid asset to their roster with the 43rd overall pick, which will occur in the second round. One player the Bucks have their eye on at the moment is guard Nemanja Nedovic, who is one of the international players hoping to get selected.
The Bucks worked out Nedovic on Friday to see if he is worth their consideration in the second round. It was his first NBA workout, which was no doubt a thrill for the 6’4’, 190-pound Serbian.
“Since it was my first workout, my first time in the States, it was very exciting,” Nedovic said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“It was unreal until this point,” Nedovic continued. “Right now I’m here and I’m starting to figure out it’s serious. I hear a lot of positive comments.
“It’s crazy, seeing the Milwaukee Bucks sign and the locker room.”
Nedovic is known to have above-average athleticism at the guard position, something the Bucks could certainly use. He is very explosive off the first step and is a great defender who is quicker than he appears. However, his biggest issue on offense is that his jump shot needs plenty of work. Not to mention, he turns the ball over way too much for a guard. There is no question he is a work in progress, but that is exactly what teams use second-round draft picks on.
