Warriors draft pick ready to make NBA transition
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors first-round pick Nmanja Nedovic has had a dozen different coaches in the last six years. He went through three coaches last season alone playing for Lietuvos rytas of the Euroleague, and he has never had much stability in his life or career moving around with his family.
Nedovic's next transition could be his toughest: making an NBA roster.
The point guard selected 30th overall said on a teleconference from Serbia on Monday that he has never been to the San Francisco Bay Area. He had never even been to the United States until last month.
The 22-year-old said he's not intimidated by new places or cultures and is ready to prove himself for the Warriors in the summer league.
