Schuhmann: Teletovic a Top Import

B. Petrinovic, Crobasket

John Schuhmann of NBA.com watches a lot of international basketball and Thursday, he looks at the class of incoming overseas players, a mix drawn from this year's draft, previous drafts and free agents. He ranks them in order of who "could make the most impact." He puts Mirza Teletovic second, just behind Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas.

"Teletovic, who turns 27 next month, probably won’t start for the Nets but he should have a pretty big role as a big man off the bench," he writes of the Nets' 6'9" forward. "He averaged 15.8 points and 6.3 boards for Caja Laboral last season, and was the leading scorer (21.7 ppg) in Euroleague play. He’s a bit of a gunner, but has a pretty complete offensive game. Defense may be an issue."

Schuhmann did not rank Toko Shengelia nor any of the other three international players signed from his year's draft which was seen as one of the weakest international drafts in years.
