The Nets selected Aleksandar Vezenkov with the No. 57 overall pick in the second round of the NBA Draft on Thursday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Vezenkov, 21, currently plays for FC Barcelona and is not expected to join the Nets immediately.
"At 6-9, 225 pounds, Vezenkov has decent size for the power forward position he mostly plays, even if he lacks athleticism in a serious way. He's not particularly quick, nor explosive, relying on his tremendous scoring instincts, basketball IQ and competitiveness to find productivity, rather than on his physical tools," writes Jonathon Givony and Mike Schmitz of Draft Express.
