BiH Born Players in the NBA Update!

Jusuf Nurkic: Nurkic picked up from where he left off last season for the team. Portland has raced out to a 5-2 record to begin the season and they appear to have more depth than last years squad. Zach Collins has been much improved from his rookie campaign and Nik Stauskas appears to have finally found a home. Nurkic is playing very well and putting up similar numbers to last season in limited minutes. His lack of mobility and ability to guard in space however is still his limitation and the reason why he isn't more highly regarded around the NBA. As the NBA has moved to more of a position less sport, one that requires ball handlers in the backcourt and floor spacers and finishers in the front court, a traditional five is often seen as a thing of the past. His toughness, rebounding and enthusiasm as well as overall skill level however makes him a useful player on almost any team. Zach Collins however appears to be more of a new era big man with his deep shooting range and mobility. Nurkic is averaging 24mpg 14.3ppg 9.6rbpg 1.3aspg while shooting 55.7% from two and a much improved 79.2% from the FT line. He recently hit his first NBA three a skill he had shown previously in Europe as well as in practices in the NBA.

Bojan Bogdanovic: Bojan has appeared to have found a home in Indiana. He is off to another good start after a great first year with the team. Indiana was a surprise team last year and are playing well again with a much improved Domantas Sabonis among others. Bojan is averaging 30mpg 14.7ppg 3.9rbpg while shooting a blistering 53.7% from two, 53.6% from three and 87.5% from the FT line. He plays within the team concept, rarely takes a bad shot and clearly feels comfortable playing for the Pacers. The team is off to a 4-3 start on the season.

Dzanan Musa: He hasn't had much of a chance to play so far and was recently assigned to the G-League to get more practice time. One of the problems in the NBA is once the season begins there isn't much time to develop young players and work one on one with them. Their coach is known as one of the best talent developers in the NBA and no doubt Dzanan will benefit from working with such a good coaching staff. The G-League could be the perfect opportunity for him to work on his game and get minutes. He's proven he is an NBA scorer but the speed of the game and playing defense against quicker players and bigger players will prove to be a challenge. He has only played 15min so far and has gone 3-6 from the field including 0-2 from three. No doubt more opportunities await him in the future.

Ivica Zubac: The 21 year old Zubac is in his third year in the NBA. He has shown flashes especially when on a G-League assignment, he hasn't been given the chance to play significant minutes so far. He is another traditional big man who struggles to get minutes in todays NBA. Zubac is skilled offensively, can rebound and pass a bit but isn't mobile enough to play big minutes in todays NBA. With the addition of LeBron James and so many other young players, getting minutes for Zubac doesn't appear to be a priority at this point. He's only played 7 minutes so far.

Dragan Bender: A tough go for Dragan Bender who has shown incremental improvement since joining the NBA three years ago. It was announced yesterday the team was declining their option on the player. Not surprising as the regime that drafted him is no longer in place. He appears to be a poor fit with the current roster and the team is clearly invested in developing DeAndre Ayton and the other young players. He hasn't been a complete bust and has improved a bit each year so far. Injuries delayed his progress last year and the team appears to have moved on from him this season and has given up on working to continue to develop him. He isn't very mobile and isn't an automatic three point scorer like his teammate Ryan Anderson. With the right team and coach he could still develop into a decent NBA player as he has shown some improvement from season to season. He's only 20 years old so to right him off at this point would be a mistake. He looks like a player that given the right situation and time could develop into a good player but given his improvement so far it could be another 5-6 years before that happens, a life time for an NBA team.

Thunder are upset by Grizzlies; Magic roll past 76ers - 12 hours ago
The Regular Season in NBA is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 15 days.

Portland centre Jusuf Nurkic suffers horrifying broken leg against Brooklyn - 13 hours ago
First it was Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.), then Gordon Hayward (6'8''-G/F-90, college: Butler) and now another NBA superstar has gone down with a horrifying broken leg. This time it is Portland Trail Blazers centre Jusuf Nurkic (7'0''-C-94), whose leg buckled and snapped as he came down from attempting to make an offensive rebound in the second period of overtime in Portland's 148-144 win over the Brooklyn Nets. With Portland leading 134-132 Mo Harkless missed a bucket...   [read more]
