Wolves Welcomes Nemanja Bjelica to the NBA! adds veteran presence to a young core



Nemanja Bjelica


Timberwolves maybe a young team but they are making sure they are headed to the right direction. They officially added the Euro league MVP today. Bjelica was drafted by the Wolves #35 pick in the 2010 NBA draft. (originally picked by Wizards traded to the Wolves). He averaged 12.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals and led his team to Final Four in Euro league, this marked the first final four appearance for his team, Fenerbah├že.

During the interview he was asked who's his favorite player growing, he said Iverson and then his coached made a joke afterwards stating that he doesn't have Iverson's crossover and they both laughed together with the rest of the press. 

The Wolves are looking to really build on this core and making sure that they have veterans that they could rely on. Bjelica mentioned that this is his dream to finally play in the NBA. He was also humble enough to admit that he has a lot to learn and Saunders tapped his right shoulder and said "We will teach you".

#GrowTogether

I really hope that Bjelica pans out well he would be the perfect fit for the team moving forward.
