The Warriors traded with the Suns and then selected Nemanja Nedovic with the No. 30 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday. Here's a look at Nedovic and how he fits with Golden State:

Bio: Serbia| 22 years old | Shooting Guard

Vitals: 6-4, 198 pounds

2012-13 Statistics: 9.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.8 steals, 36.7 percent shooting in 10 games Euroleague games (via DraftExpress)

Team Fit: Nedovic is an incredible athlete by any standards (his vertical was just an inch short of freak leaper Ben McLemore, per DraftExpress), but at the moment is a high-risk offensive player and a lacking perimeter defender. Still, his combo-guard skillset could eventually make him an interesting fit with the Warriors, as he'd be able to create for both Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson as a flexible reserve option. He's not as consistent a shooter as you'd expect nor a particularly creative finisher inside, but handle and physical gifts alone make Nedovic worth a glance for a Warriors team in a position to make a play for guard depth with Jarrett Jack set to be a free agent.
