NBA Mock Draft: San Antonio Spurs Select Nikola Milutinov from Serbia

SB Nation's NBA Network conducted a mock draft with bloggers from each team site making or trading "their" team's pick. We continue with the next pick in the 2015 NBA Mock Draft, with Pounding the Rock selecting Nikola Milutinov from Serbia.

NBA Mock Draft Pick #26 -- Nikola Milutinov, Center, Serbia

SB Nation's Spurs blog, Pounding the Rock, explains the pick:

With the 26th pick of the NBA draft, the San Antonio Spurs select Nikola Milutinov of Partizan Belgrade in the Basketball League of Serbia. He's huge and moves well for a seven footer. Can catch and finish. In a couple of years he could become a decent low usage, high efficiency guy who can play solid defense.

Tyler Zeller is a good comparison. A poor man´s Mozgov is the best case scenario. He's big but not too strong, skilled but not a go-to guy on offense or an anchor on defense. Probably tops out at third big but if he adds muscle, he could be a very good reserve, think Kosta Koufos.
