FYI, there's two basketball players with the same name. This one is the one born in 1999, not the 34 year old. :lol:

Not the 34 year old? :roll:

Another fail for the new front office.


Big, but thin. Can stretch the court and shoot a bit. Better at crashing the boards and putting it back than low post scoring. Alright.

At 44? I like it.

Don't know anything about him, but was hoping for Manion. Simonovic looks pretty solid though.

Nwora to the bucks right after us too.

Simonovic seems interesting! Lots of flashes on offense

Bulls don’t have many roster slots so someone to stash makes sense.

Intriguing prospect. He definitely isn't a stiff. It will be interesting to see once his body fills out slightly.

I'm trusting AK on this.....but it doesn't give me a lot of hope when most of the highlights are of him missing shots from the post. He moves well, but he's no jokic. So nobody should have that expectation level.

Who has mentioned Jokic? They play nothing alike.

I am L OV I N G this second round pick, such potential and a stash.

This is AK drafting at his best.

This dude is gonna get bulked up and work on his game over the next year and people will be wondering how he went so low.
GO BULLS!

Definitely better than trading the pick for cash considerations. Maybe he will be a second round gem.

The tweet about him not joining us next season (clearly, as he is like a stash player), but the part of him possibly not EVER coming over, is a little concerning.

His clips are fun.

Anyone heard whether he’s a stash?

Jokic is a top 5 player in the world, and is more the exception than anyone. I feel like any Euro big that ever gets drafted in the second round is instantly going to have the tagline 'Is he the next Jokic?'. If it were that easy, we'd see Jokic level players everywhere.
