The Denver Nuggets selected Nikola Radicevic with the 57th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Radicevic, 21, is a lefty from Serbia. He played with Kristaps Porzingis (No. 4 overall) and Willy Hernangomez (No. 35 overall) and could be a steal late in the 2nd round.

Radicevic is a crafty point guard with good size (6’5″), instincts and passing ability. He can finish with both hands on floaters and he is a good playmaker on pick-and-rolls. He has shown flashes of 3-point shooting ability (30.6% in ACB/EuroCup) and will hopefully become more consistent beyond the arc.
