Ivica Zubac 

Post#1 » by pohani komarac » Thu Dec 31, 2015 12:18 am

2 and half years ago I said this kid is most talented Croatian center since Dino Radja (for young kids, he was 20 and 10 in NBA at his prime :wink: ) and with time he is starting to make scouts notice him. Here is DX scoting video of Zubac

He remembers me of Vucevic, honeslty he is not a better prospect than Bender or Hezonja, on par with Saric I'd say.
He should be a lotto pick if he declares this year.

Zubac reminds me of a better version of Robin Lopez. I say he'll end up in the top-23 if he declares this year, I doubt he does though. There could be too many legit big's worthy of being selected before him, depending on who else declares.

I'd venture to say the only way he stays in the 2016 draft pool is if he's got a promise. Damn good prospect/player though, If my Jazz selected him somewhere in the teens(and gave Tibor Pleiss his walking papers) I'd consider that a successful 1st round pick.

I really hope all all the top international prospects declare. Otherwise this is going to be a sad draft.

Today he terminated contract with Cibona 2 likley scenarios

1. Goes to some top level basketball club......means he won't go to NBA soon
2. Goes to lower level club for rest of season (posibley his agent team Mega Leks or some other).....means he will go for draft

he can go obviously to aba league team, but he cant play aba league for them, so its national championship, and eurolegue!
And whats important for this thread is that he signed for three and half years but he has a nba out in all of them!
