9. Nemanja Nedovic (1991, PG, 6’4”, Serbia, Lietuvos Rytas)

Nedovic has amazing athletic abilities, probably the best in Europe at his position, combined with a solid physical structure for the role. This year he played constantly in Euroleague with Lietuvos Rytas averaging 10 points and 2 assists in 23 minutes on the court, after some solid performances at the 2012 adidas Eurocamp. In the open court he is tremendously effective with the ability to finish above the rim in basically every transition. In the half court game he has the ability to beat his defender off the dribble with a quick first step and crossovers, getting to the rim often and drawing contacts. Even if his shots lacks consistency, he has a good mechanics and technical basis in this fundamental, showing good progress since last season (from 27% to 34%), but there’s still a lot of work to do with his jump shot. He still needs to develop his playmaking skills, where he shows some glimpses in P&R situations but he has to add more consistency, he’s not a point guard but rather a combo at the moment. Nedovic could be an intriguing pick at the end of the second round, where a team could invest in him developing over the next few years.

Ain't been a decent Serbian player in the NBA since Peja (Pekovic is technically from Montonegro), will be interested to see how this guy progesses and why there ain't been more guys from that region coming to the NBA.

*Versatile guard at 6'4" (PG/SG)
*He is ridicilously athletic.... quick, explosive with amazing vertical
*Is absolutely deadly in the open court.
*Extremly good attacking the rim with his unstoppable first step & decent handles (his go to is the crossover & hesitation), screen wont be needed, but his finishing ability has to improve.
*Has great jumpshot technique but no great/pure shooter or something, his efficiency/accuracy is average, sometimes good/bad... inconsistent is the correct word, he must improve there.
*Is ok facilitator/passer but his decision making must improve, its kindof a weakness.
*Ability wise has potential to be a fantastic defender, but his effort is kindof not there most of the time...

Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Stephon Marbury, Steve Francis is a good comparison i guess..... not as good as any of them obviously, but he is that type of athlete at similar size and has that type of gamestyle and probably has potential to be as good as at least one of those guys mentioned in the NBA if his will/work ethic is there and if given the chance aswell...

At this point in the NBA he would be best suitable as a backup SG... and grow from there (his IQ right now is not good enough to be an acceptable PG in the NBA imo)

Has potential, but don't think he's going to be a starter on decent team ever, lacks iq and is too inconsistent.

He is a Goran Dragic type of player. Very athletic and very retarded. A "point guard" with zero actual point guard skills.

So....a bad point guard that NBA will drool over and love. He's the exact kind of "point guard" the NBA wants - no point guard skills, ball hog, athletic, retarded level IQ.

He is like an anti Kostas Sloukas.........who was not even drafted. Pretty much says it all right there. He's exactly what NBA teams are looking for in a European guard.......athleticism and no real skills or brains.

False. He's not the most athletic point guard in Europe. These guys are all either more athletic, or just as athletic.

He's not more athletic than any of those point guards that are playing in Europe.

Often people say the guy is athletic just because he jumps high. And thats the truth with Nedovic. Hes one of the best hoppers at his position.

His defense is horrible , not good at organising the offense , inconsistant shooter but is athletic ( has higher vertical than Rose ) .

Athletic ability genius.

And I did not say they were all better athletes. I said some were better and some as good. I just said he isn't the most athletic point guard in Europe, like was being claimed here.

He's definitely athletic, but nothing all that particularly special by top European basketball standards for his position.

Do you have any updates on Teodosic's injury status? Do you know if he will play this summer or not? If not, do you think Ivkovic will make Nedovic the main point guard?
