First-Round Pick Nemanja Nedovic Cleared to Join Warriors

Warriors first-round draft pick Nemanja Nedovic has finally gotten his visa and is ready to join the team.

Golden State coach Mark Jackson said Nedovic was scheduled to arrive in the Bay Area on Monday evening. He is expected to participate in Tuesday’s practice after flying from Serbia.Nedovic_070913_300

Nedovic, who the Warriors drafted 30th overall, is already guaranteed a roster spot. But he won’t be guaranteed playing time.

“We’re a good basketball team,” Mark Jackson said after Monday’s practice. “It’s going to be tough for anybody to just come in and be able to play for us. But he’ll have an opportunity.”

Nedovic — a 6-3 athletic combo guard who has been called the Euro Derrick Rose — figures to be behind back-up guards Toney Douglas and Kent Bazemore on the depth chart.

    I’m still shocked they signed this guy. They only traded for him so that they could trade next year’s pick for Igoudala.
