Summary: Apr 29 Update: Nedovic is a superathletic combo guard with an explosive 41-inch vertical. He's playing major minutes in Lithuania this year for Lietuvos Rytas and averaged 10 PPG and 2.1 APG in Euroleague play this season.
While his game appears to still be trapped between a one and two, there's no question he has the athletic ability and the requisite aggressiveness on offense to play in the NBA. He's a potential second-round "draft-and-stash" pick.
Apr 24 Update: Nedovic has declared for the 2012 NBA Draft. He's an NBA athlete all the way. He measured with a crazy 41-inch vertical at the Adidas Eurocamp last year. But he's a bit of a tweener, lacks a great jump shot and is still playing a limited role on his team. A potential second-round pick.
June 13, 2011 Update: Nedovic didn't put up great numbers at the Eurocamp but he measured a crazy 41-inch vertical at the camp and generally looked like the most NBA-ready athlete here at the camp. He needs to improve his jump shot, but he's clearly another potential first-round prospect in 2012.
