2011 NBA Mock Draft: New Jersey Nets Select Nikola Mirotic with 27th Pick
Weight: 226 lbs.
Comparison: Linas Kleiza/Andrea Bargnani
It seems like people are looking for the next Dirk Nowitzki every year. Unfortunately, that has led to a lot of Nikoloz Tskitishvilis.
That's sort of the best-case/worst-case scenario for Mirotic.
Talent-wise, he could very well be a first-round pick this year. However, he does have some contract issues that would make a lot of teams hesitant to select him.
He may be stuck on his European team for a while.
New Jersey's biggest hole is at small forward and Mirotic could be a nice addition to an already talented front line that includes Kris Humphries and Brook Lopez.
