The Golden State Warriors drafted Nemanja Nedovic with the 30th pick in Thursday’s draft, and their plan for the athletic guard isn’t to stash him overseas in 2013-14, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.

Obviously, it’s too soon to speculate. Nedovic has yet to confirm he will even compete in the summer league, and if he denies, it’s unlikely that he will be on the Warriors’ 2013-14 roster.
Nedovic has been compared to Derrick Rose, or more specifically, he’s been called the “European Derrick Rose.” That’s quite a lofty comparison, as Rose is a former MVP winner and proven superstar. Nedovic, well, isn’t.
Here’s a passage from Marcus Thompson’s report:
He’s been dubbed the “European Derrick Rose” because of his athleticism and size (and his tendency to dunk on defenders). But he’s a bit of a tweener. He’s a slashing type of scorer who is too small to play shooting guard but currently lacks the skills to thrive at point guard.
Nedovic has holes in his game, most notably on the shooting front–mainly off the dribble. He’s an athletic guard, but his ball handling is also a bit shaky.
It seems like the Warriors are hopeful that Nedovic can contribute in 2013-14, but nothing is official.
