Blog Photo - NBA Draft pick #30 - Phoenix SunsWith the final pick of the first round, the Phoenix Suns have selected Nemanja Nedovic out of Serbia with their second pick of the draft.  They are reportedly sending the pick to Golden State, who did not previously have a first round pick.

Nedovic is a 6'4" point guard who has excellent athleticism and good length.  He reportedly has a 41" vertical and has been called the "European Derick Rose" because of his explosive leaping ability.

The Warriors are looking to build off of their incredible, Cinderella playoff run and Nedovic has the potential to add elite athleticism that their starting point guard, Steph Curry, lacks.

In moving to higher level competition in Eurppe, Nedovic struggled with turnovers and efficiency, but scouts love his upside, largely because of his physical tools.

Definitely more foreign players in the first round than I anticipated.
