NBA Talk #12: Two Teams are interested in Nikola Vucevic
Image Source What's up basketball fans! How are you doing? I am here again @dwin0603 to give you another interesting basketball discussion and today, we will discuss about Orlando Magic's center Nikola Vucevic and his future. Let's get started! Nikola Vucevic is one of the best big men in the NBA today but his name is not very popular. He hasn't been noticed by NBA fans and I think he is so underrated. I believe he deserves to be included in the top big men in the NBA conversation. He is averaging a double-double and he has a unique skill set that not every big men in the NBA is capable of. I think the reason why nobody is talking about him is because he is in the mediocre Orlando Magic team. In my own opinion, it's best for him to look for another team where he can truly showcase his talent and be rewarded for it. At the end of this season Nikola Vucevic will be available and I am sure that many teams will have a run for him. He can be one of the most affordable valuable asset because of his low expected salary. I think he deserves better and a higher contract with his production. He is not a typical big man because he can play down low in the paint and can shoot outside with consistency. Image Source Vucevic is a solid scorer. He can go toe-to-toe against the best bigs in the NBA. He is currently averaging 20.4 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks a game with an impressive 26.40 Player Efficiency Rating. He's only 28 years old and just entered his prime. Vucevic can surely help playoffs teams who are looking for a nice piece with an affordable contract who can help them in the post season. Vucevic is just expecting 12.8 million dollars according to Cordell Long of CBS sports. Orlando already collected tough young big men in their roster including Mo Bamba and Aaron Gordon who is likely to be their new franchise cornerstone. Gordon is getting better every year and I think they will hand the keys to him to lead them for years to come. So because of that, the Magic can get rid of Vucevic and move on to start fresh next season. Two teams are reportedly interested in acquiring Nikola Vucevic, the Boston Celtics and the San Antonio Spurs. Boston have a nice lineup with a combination of young stars and veterans. Vucevic can help them upgrade their inside scoring and rebounding. And if the Celtics are ready to make a move now, I think they can offer Terry Rozier in a package to get Vucevic. Magic will be thrilled to get Rozier that will guaranty them a nice player at the point guard position they craved for too long. The Spurs is also interesting destination for Vucevic. I'm sure Coach Pop will make the most out of him. They are the best in developing players and Vucevic can help their struggling offense. So what's your take guys? Where is Vucevic best fitted? Spurs or Celtics? That is all for today and I will leave you with some of Vucevic's highlights. Drop your comments now and let's have some basketball talk! :) Video Source
