With all the Nets brainpower focusing in on European players, we brought in international basketball reporter David Pick (@IAmDPick) to discuss which players the Nets may have interest in.
The big headliner is Milos Teodosic, a 30-year-old PG whose known as the best player in Europe. The Nets have not been shy about their affection for the Serbian, Sean Marks and Kenny Atkinson sat courtside at one of Teodosic’s games earlier this season. But as Pick sees it, it’s unlikely Teodosic will play for the Nets if he comes over to the NBA.
“What is Milos looking for. He’s looking for a winning team, he doesn’t take losing very well... The Brooklyn Nets, I just don’t think Milos has time at 30 to start help an organization rebuild.”
Pick believes the Denver Nuggets are a strong possibility, with Teodosic having a strong relationship with fellow Serbian Nikola Jokic and the team’s need at point guard. But for all you #MilosTruthers out there, don’t despair, we discuss with Pick all the possible international prospects the Nets could pick in the upcoming draft, including the intriguing 7’2” Anzejs Pasecniks and Rodions Kurucs, who the Nets are consistently linked to in mock drafts and Marks got a special assist from Kurucs’s team so he could see him in person.
Listen through, Pick knows his stuff when it comes to international basketball.
