Yeah and that was two years ago but they would have still drafted him in the top ten this year is what i said. I know about the contract issue, but that also is not the only reason he wasnt taken till the second round. The team drafting him would have needed to be able to pay him more than he would be offered in europe which they wouldnt be able to do if he was taken in the first round because of the rookie scale contracts that you can not get around.<quoted text>
PEKOVIC would have gone in the lotto the year he was drafted, but all GM's knew that he would be overseas for at least a couple years. He was then the consensus number one pick in the 2nd round to avoid giving him a guaranteed contract.
