Pretty ordinary name for a Croatian dude.  Sounds like a weak 7 footer who shoots to many outside shots to me I really don't like the european style of play at the 4 spot considering we already have a stretch 4 that can't shoot.  First Mullens, then McRoberts, now this guy.   Yes you want a guy to hit a 15 to 20 footer relatively consistently, but not a guy that gets easily rooted out of the post and has no put back strength.

The NBA's high priest of lineup data was the first person to point this out to me, in 2009; Wayne Winston's theory of NBA lineups is basically if you play two or more guys who can't shoot, the lineup is very likely to perform poorly, even if it's loaded with good players. More recently Winston looked up lineups with four shooters, and found they were almost all excellent. 

And that's against any and all defenses.

A few years ago Dwight Howard and a bunch of otherwise unremarkable 3-point shooters had one of the best offenses in recent NBA history.

The Warriors' playoff run only took off when an injury to David Lee forced them to start four 3-point shooters.

The Heat haven't lost a playoff series since they adopted a strategy of playing 3-point shooters with their superstars.

you need guys who can shoot. Read the excerpt I posted from "live by the 3, or die"

Bulls won 6 titles in 8 years with 3 starters who couldn't score.

Theory debunked.
