Nihad Dedovic Bosnian basketball prodigy has declared for the NBA draft

Nihad Dedovic the basketball prodigy who burst onto the international basketball scene as a professional at the age of 15 has declared for this years NBA draft. He has been one of the best Bosnian basketball prospects of the post war BiH period.
His size 6'6" and strength make him ideal for a big strong SG in the NBA. His speed, explosiveness and lateral quickness may prevent him from creating his own shot easily in the NBA however. Also his inconsistent outside shot would make NBA defenders dare him to beat them from the outside. At certain points in his career I have read that he may be a 1st round pick. However, given his current physical limitations it looks more likely he will end up drafted in the second round and stashed in Europe waiting to see if he develops. He is a very hard working dedicated young man who will continue to get better every year if he remains injury free and won't reach his peak performance until the age of 28-31. So regardless if he ends up in the NBA he will be  long term starter on the highest level of European basketball for many years.
