   2011 NBA Draft Diary
2011-06-25

Pick 42: For some bizarre reason, as a part of the George Hill/Kawhi Leonard deal, Indiana are the team giving up the extra assets. They ship the number 42 pick to the Spurs in the deal, where San Antonio used it to take Davis Bertans, the ultimate draft-and-stash candidate who really should have gone about ten picks previously. Bertans is only 18 years old, and could well be amongst Europe's best when he hits 24. Will Jon Leuer be among Europe's best when he hits 24?

Davis Bertans
PF, 6’10, 210lbs, 24 years old, 1 year of experience

Managed 808 regular season minutes, 113 playoff ones, and spent only four games on assignment. In that time, he showed pretty much the same package as in his prior Euroleague career prior; an unblockable shot, good shooting from the corners and straight-on, no post-up play, cuts rather than drives, no mid-range action, a spindly frame, better than it looks as though he should have shotblocking timing, and absolutely terrible rebounding numbers. Work on the strength and the shooting from the wings, while staying healthy, and that’ll do for an eighth man.

Player Plan: Has a guaranteed minimum salary contract for next season, then restricted free agency after that. It would be nice to see him develop more than one plus NBA skill, maybe turn that shotblocking skill into something regular, but the one skill will do.
