Second-round pick who could be a good contributor on a winning team off the bench.

Key statistics:
2010-11 KK Hemofarm – Adriatic League: 19.2 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 2.8 apg. FG 59%, 3PT 41%, FT 77%
KK Hemofarm – Eurocup: 17 ppg, 8 rpg, 3.8 apg. FG 59%, 3PT 25%, FT 80%
Maccabi Tel Aviv – Israel 1st division: 9 mpg, 4.9 ppg, 2 rpg, 0.8 apg. FG 57%, 3PT 43%, FT 86%
Maccabi Tel Aviv – Eurolegue: 9 mpg, 4.5 ppg, 1.7 rpg. FG 57%, FT 91% 

Cool statistic:
Milan led a highly successful Serbian generation. He won three gold medals during the summers of 2007 and 2008 (u19 World Championship 2007, u18 Eurobasket 2007 and u18 Eurobasket 2008). His performance in Madrid u18 Eurobasket 2007, with 32 points and 14 rebounds, is unforgettable. He was part of the Serbian national team that won the Silver Medal in 2009 Eurobasket in Poland.

Reminds me of:
Less of a rebounder than Kevin Love with Vlade Divac tendencies.

What the Experts Say:
Luka Bassin, head coach, Slovenia/Scout, NetScouts Basketball
"Power forward with great energy and character. Very strong. Very versatile in offense. Can shoot from behind the arc and can use his power close to basket. Can keep good spacing and can make an opportunity for teammates when he is double-teamed. Very good passer. The guy who fits in every team."

Current contract and team:
Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel

Chris Denker and Carl Berman are Managing Partners of NetScouts Basketball, "The International Basketball Connection."
