Draft Prospect: Leon Radosevic
The San Antonio Spurs will pick 29th in the second round (59th overall) in the upcoming NBA draft, San Antonio sent their 2012 first round draft pick to the Golden State Warriors in the Richard Jefferson-Stephen Jackson trade.
This offseason, one of the Spurs' immediate concern is adding another big man to add more length and shore up their frontline. While bringing over Erazem Lorbek remains a possibility for next season, the Spurs could certainly use the draft to add a serviceable big.
Leon Radosevic is currently 59th overall in DraftExpress.com's 2012 Mock Draft.
Let's get to know him better.
At 6-foot-10 and 240 pounds, Radosevic has an interesting combination of size and mobility, he has a high basketball IQ and plays the pick and roll effectively.
He has good hands and a reliable jump shot (68.2 percent on field goal percentage in 30 games in Italian League). Has a good attitude and a blue collar type of player, which allows him to be effective despite his physical and technical shortcomings, plus his off the ball game is excellent. Think a younger version of Fabricio Oberto here.
Radosevic isn't particularly gifted player from the technical standpoint. His ball handling and footwork are still lacking, and he is not a real threat with his back to the basket. However, his unselfish attitude and work ethic can make him a good role-player in the NBA.
