Danko Cvjeticanin's Net Connection

In a video that's now gone down the NBA memory hole, Billy King credited Danko Cvjeticanin with a big part of the Nets Draft Night success.  Who? The Nets' international scout, that's who. He highly recommended Bojan Bogdanovic, a fellow Croatian, who Chad Ford has said may be the "steal of the draft", even if the Nets have to wait. "He really was high on him," said King.

King noted that Cvjeticanin has been with him every year he's worked in the NBA but one and he trusts his judgment. But Cvjeticanin has a far deeper Nets connection. He played with what Croatians call their "Generation 92", the Croatian national team that won the silver in the 1992 Olympics, along with Dino Radja, Toni Kukoc and of course, Drazen Petrovic.

Cvjeticanin told one Croatian hoops site days after the Draft that Bogdanovic was the Nets' top choice (and would have been their pick at #27 if MarShon Brooks hadn't fallen).  He also spoke with a Florida newspaper this week about "Generation 92" and Petrovic, "the model of my perfect basketball player." Cvjeticanin's son, Filip, has just enrolled at Florida Gulf Coast University.
