Lots of high floor very good ceiling versatility with Luka. He sort of got lost in the sexy names throughout the draft, but I'm really happy that we have drafted him without having to move the pick to do so.

I do wonder whether we move Davis at some point as Luka is Davis plus plus just starting out in terms of versatile skill set. That's not to disparage Davis, but we do have player who excel at one thing more than others, and need more versatile forward/big type of players.

He's only 19, and the Euro game right now is way more physical than the NBA. With the rule changes favoring offensive players, he has a chance to excel in the NBA. Not expecting him to be ready for a couple years but I think he will be an all-star at some point in his career or close to it

I still have to check out his SL play... especially after that drive subjected above, very impressive! That's the second time he's done that, as he did it against Charlotte too..

He's still not a NBA caliber player IMO, a couple of years of development and he could be impressive. I am from Croatia, and people here say, if he doesn't make it in the Spurs, he's just not that good.
