    saw reports that mentioned it happened in the 2nd quarter. I watched his 2nd quarter play and I didn't notice anything obvious. There was one sequence where he was rooting a guy out of the way by really getting his legs under the guy, foul called on the other guy, and Milutinov made a grimace, but nothing that screamed knee injury.

    In the third there was a play where he jumped and his foot slid down the back of another players leg on the way down causing him to fall and there was some inward bend of his legs, maybe something like an mcl sprain?

    Unless they are lying, it's 10 days and he doesn't need surgery, so who cares...

    Not much to say that hasn't already been said. But he is not having a great playoff series so far.

    What does that mean? Like has he committed to not coming over again?
    No, this was just about him being cleared to play. He suffered a minor knee injury a week ago.

    Hey Chinook, as resident cap expert, can the Spurs still bring Milutinov over as a first round pick (with the specific exception to sign your 1st round picks), or will he have to come as capspace/some other exception? If yes, what summer will his 1st round pick exception lapse?

    The exception never "lapses". So long as team keeps the rights, the option to use the rookie scale remains. What happens is that after three years, the team also gets the option to sign the player as if they are a free agent, with the caveats that the contract has to be for at least three years and with each year paying more than the player would have received under the rookie-scale contract.

    So yes, the Spurs could use the rookie scale to sign Milutinov. The real question is if Nikola would accept that. There was a rumor last year that he was trying for a Bogdan Bogdanovic contract, and that's obviously way more (both than the rookie scale and than what any sane team would offer him).

    What are the chances he gets brought over this summer?

    Probably won't. He's obviously not over himself. Just lay the ball up softly. Dunking is so selfish. -

    Asumming we salary dump Pau this summer to make a run at LeBron, we’re going to need a starting center. Milutinov would fit the bill nicely.

    in case anybody was wondering, that highlight video confirms that milutinov is, in fact, capable of jumping and guiding the ball downwards into the rim with both hands

    Hot Damn a Center Who Can Finally Catch A Pass And Then Be Able To Dunk The Ball - Fuck Ya!

    If you pair him with White the dude will be killing it. Just watching his games
    he is basketball smart he know when to roll to basket set screens and be in position for easy dunks. Him and White can do some serious damage.

    Plug in and Play day one would be Nikola he is actually perfect for half court offense. AP has more potential but that word has killed a lot of teams and Pop is not known for coaching up big men.

    Helpful. So spurs should ask for Bolden from Philly instead :-)

    I would hope so he can easily be paired with Nikola he was someone I liked last year. He was a second round draft pick 36 so I think he could be included in any deal.

    short bit from fansided about Euro advanced stats leaders for stashes and draft prospects

    https://fansided.com/2018/05/25/nylo...ional-leagues/

    Nikola Milutinov: The Spurs’ 2015 first-round selection completed a second strong stash year in the Greek HEBA A1 league and EuroLeague. A solid offensive player, Milutinov’s NBA value will come from his good defense and strong rebounding.

    EuroLeague: +1.5 OBPM, +3.5 DBPM, 1.4 VORP (97th percentile in BPM)

    Greek HEBA A1: +4.0 OBPM, +8.1 DBPM, 1.5 VORP (99th percentile in BPM)

    according to this article:

    https://www.eurohoops.net/en/tradema...euroleague/11/

    Milutinov's buyout is only $1 million, which is pretty small. The amount the Spurs could contribute towards the buyout in 18-19 is $700k. Only having to cover 300k on his own makes Milutinov easily gettable if the Spurs want him.

    If that is true that would be huge and valuable.

    And if we do a sized deal involving Leonard we need to get Bolden too.

    Serbian national team coach worried that Milutinov might miss national play because of possible knee surgery after Greek League Finals

    https://www.mozzartsport.com/kosarka...venciju/298047

    Situacija već nije tako jasna kad je u pitanju Nikola Milutinov.
    “Isto ima klupskih obaveza, posle bi sa klupskim lekarima trebalo da vidi da li ima potrebe da radi intervencije na kolenima koja ga muče. On bi mogao jako da pomogne ekipi, pauzirao je malo i pre ovog plej-ofa. Već sam razgovarao sa njim. Videćemo u razgovoru sa klupskim, ali i našim lekarima kakva će odluka biti. Mi ćemo poštovati svaku odluku. Mislim da možda može da otkaže tu intervenciju, ali to nije na meni“, kaže Đorđević.
    google translate

    The situation is not so clear now when it comes to Nikola Milutinov.
    "He also has club obligations, he should then talk with club doctors if he needs to intervene on his knees that are bothering him. He could really help the team, he paused a bit before this play. I already spoke to him. We will see in conversation with the club, but also our doctors what the decision will be. We will respect every decision. I think he may be able to cancel this intervention, but that's not on me, "Djordjevic says.

    Also worth noting is this from April 9th, 2018:

    https://twitter.com/DimitropulosOCT/...28331755065344

    Happy to announce a great addition to Octagon Europe, Nikola Milutinov of Olympiakos, San Antonio Spurs 1st-round draft-pick & Euroleague's top center. Welcome to the family Nikola.
    Considering that some other agency or agent did his contract with Olympiakos, a brand new contract would get a nice commission for the new agency.

    Tweeter is Giorgos Dimitropoulos of Octagon Europe. Parent Company is Octagon Basketball, represents among others Steph Curry, Giannis, Bam Adebayo, OG Anunoby, etc
