Nemanja Bjelica has alot of skills for a 6' 10" frame, he reminds me of a Toni Kukoc type of game and I am sure he watched video of Dejan Bodiroga that he patterned his game around. Nemanja has a very good handle, like those 2 European legends and also is much like Lamar Odom of the Lakers with the ability to shake guys off the dribble and also hit the deep 3 pointer consistently. He also has good post-up ability against smaller defenders, when he plays the off-guard spot. He won a silver medal with Serbia at Eurobasket 2009 and also played well in the 2010 Serbian league with Crvena Zvezda, scoring 19 points per game, going for 26 points in one game against Serbian and Euroleague power Partizan.   Nemanja was selected with the 35th pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the Wizards, but his rights were traded to the T-Wolves and they were after Nemanja late in the summer to come over to the NBA, but he signed a 5 year deal with ACB champs Caja Laboral and will add versatility and depth to the already deep squad. Nemanja has parts of his game ready for NBA ball, but one or two good years of Euroleague play and ACB play will have this young and very talented wing player ready for the T-Wolves, who already have Nikola Pekovic under contract, along with Darko Milicic. After next season Ricky Rubio will be more than ready for NBA minutes, because he stayed two good years in Europe and Nemanja is making a good move to take his talents to the ACB faster European pace, before he will show his all-around skills in the most wide open style of play that truly suits his game in the NBA.
