Warriors Select Nemanja Nedovic After Multiple Trades to End 1st Round

Alex Kay@AlexPKayCorrespondent IJune 28, 2013

After starting the day without a selection in the 2013 NBA draft, the Golden State Warriors reportedly shook up the latter portion of the first round with a number of transactions.

According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, the Warriors initially purchased the No. 26 overall pick from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

CBS Sports’ Ken Berger found that Golden State then used that selection on forward Andre Roberson out of Colorado but reportedly sent him to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for the No. 29 pick.

Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group summed it all up perfectly, nothing that the Warriors will receive cash considerations for their troubles:

However, Dubs general manager Bob Myers wasn’t finished yet, as he swapped the No. 29 pick with the Phoenix Suns, who were in possession of the final pick in the first round, as per Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

When the Warriors finally made their selection at No. 30, they nabbed 22-year-old guard Nemanja Nedovic out of Serbia, as per Thompson.

The 6’4” prospect can play both backcourt positions, although he’s a bit undersized for an off-guard. He possesses elite athleticism and the ability to penetrate into the lane but has to work on a number of other skills, including his jump shot.

It would be genuinely surprising if the Warriors brought him over this season, and they will likely stash him overseas for at least one year.

However, as the Dubs proved with this wild flurry of trades, anything can happen.
