I see Nemanja Bjelica, property of the #Twolves, has played well in 2 of Caja Laboral's 3 games. 25 & 9 last game. Think he's here next yr.

I agree. Maybe he takes Derrick's spot? (In before OMG RACIST!)

Bjelica said today that he will play next season in the NBA if he gets an offer from the Timberwolves...

Don't know if this was ever posted. Randomly found it. Thought people might be interested. Looks bigger than I remember.

Seems like an Adelman-type guy, and AK47 would be the perfect mentor for him. Will have to take a Shved-like contract.

Yes, yes and yes. He is a smart and very complete player. It's a pity because he could play this season here. He is progressing day by day since months ago and now he is in his best moment.

For the third time this Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season, the honor for the week’s best performance is shared by two players. The regular season came to an end with a flurry of close games, but it was great efforts in a pair of bigger victories that saw Nemanja Bjelica of Caja Laboral Vitoria and Shawn James of Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv become bwin co-MVPs for Week 10. It is the first such honor for each player. Both compiled performance index ratings of 27 – the best among all players on winning teams this week – in leading their teams to important wins. Bjelica only missed 1 shot while scoring 22 points, his Euroleague career high, as Vitoria routed Cedevita Zagreb 97-70 at home to clinch a Top 16 berth. Bjelica also had 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in just 22 minutes off the bench. James collected a double-double to help Maccabi down Alba Berlin 78-62 to finish first in Group B. He scored 10 points on 4-for-5 shooting and tallied 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocked shots for Maccabi. Two other players matched their index ratings of 27, but came out on the losing sides of their gams. Drew Gordon of Partizan mt:s Belgrade had his best game to date with 14 points, 15 rebounds and 2 blocks, including a put-back dunk to force overtime, although his team came up short 92-90 against Brose Baskets Bamberg. In his first Euroleague start, Elan Chalon-sur-Saone forward Clint Capela posted 12 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks in an 86-62 loss at Unicaja Malaga. The week's fifth-best performance, Deon Thompson of Alba Berlin with a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds, couldn't prevent a road loss to Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv.


He's getting better and better. Can't wait for him to come over.

I've been hearing more and more that he will be here next year. It will be interesting to see what type of contract he gets.

It does likely signal the end of Derrick's career.

If we gained a roster spot by getting a Disabled Player Exception for Malcolm Lee, does Bjelica's european contract allow him to come over here now?

Would it help his development in the NBA?

He's played in either F position but i don't think he's quick-fluid enough to play extended minutes at the 3 in the NBA.
If you want to try to measure the elements of basketball that are supposedly unmeasurable, spend a game just watching Marc Gasol.

agreed. He looks soft as heck to me as well. I don't think he'd be better than Williams.

Next season? i don't think so, he's not mature enough. Actually this guy would probably be a better choice.

Hasn't improved noticeably in 3-4 years. Still lacks confidence, still plays soft, still overrates his own three point ability and still hasn't improved his handles. Average lateral quickness at best.
He does have good vision and playmaking while his feet are set or while he's getting a hand-off and there's generally lots of movement. Anything more than two dribbles and it's likely a risky situation for him and his team.
He has no post-game whatsoever.

Might have improved feel for rebounding and that's about it. Mentally weak, shy, and his body-language follows his character up perfectly.
Maybe a new setting (and a new game - NBA) where he isn't under the constant eye of a drill-sergeant would change things, but i doubt it.

I think i have to agree with you, i was not impressed first time i saw him play vs our NT(even though he was most impressive of all serbian players out there), and after few games i seen, all i can say he is fine player and for him it would be best to stay in Spain.Best case scenario: he can be AK47 with less hustle and almost no defense but with better scoring ability.

If wolves decide to look for young backup C/PF which can shoot 3s nearly 50% check out this guy http://www.acb.com/jugador.php?id=217.He had good games vs Real and Barca and recently set career high.His post moves are Pek-like and he is also good perimeter shooter unlike Pek.He developed nicely in Valencia and growing into one of the best PFs in Europe.

Couldn't agree more, his name (among other montenegrins) already poped out recently.
