One main topic of conversation among scouts in attendance this morning was Croatian forward Dario Saric’s reported decision to withdraw from the 2013 NBA Draft.
Raising the ire of many, one team picking in the teens opined, “[Saric was] not as accessible as he needed to be during the draft process; information hasn’t been forthcoming outside of one draft blog. We can’t draft a guy like that without getting him in our gym and without a physical or interview.”
“He’s really not even that good,” says another NBA exec drafting outside the lottery. “He played in a terrible league and he was just average there. Which coach will play him as a point forward in the NBA? I don’t see it unless he significantly improves his defense and shooting. He’s not a guy that can create his own shot in the half-court in our league.”
