With all the hype surrounding the Denver Nuggets selection of Emmanuel Mudiay with 7th overall pick in the NBA Draft last night, it’s understandable the Nuggets second round pick got very little media buzz. Regardless, the Nuggets took the international route with the pick, a familiar decision considering recent Nuggets drafts.

Nikola Radicevic out of Serbia was the 57th overall pick by the Nuggets. The 6-foot-5 200-pound Radicevic is a point guard who last played in Spain with Baloncesto Sevilla, a team he signed a 5-year contract with back in 2012. He was actually teammates with the Knick’s first-round pick in the draft, Kristapas Porzingis.

This past season Radicevic averaged 7.2 points, 3.2 assists, and 2.3 rebounds in 21.3 minutes. Still only 21-years-old, Radicevic is a big point guard similar to the Nuggets first pick with Mudiay.

Expect Radicevic to continue to play in Spain’s Liga ACB with Sevilla for a couple more years to develop his game and athleticism. Next summer’s summer league action may be the first time Radicevic dawns a Nugget jersey.
