Zubac could not be more excited - heís been a HUGE Lakers fan for his entire life, told me he cried like a baby when Kobe scored 60.


I've always liked Ivica Zubac.

Not a draft and stash then.

Best case - 15th man on team
Worst case - dfenders


Lol how do you know? I trust the FO. A 32nd pick wasn't lightly considered.

Ivica Zubac told us Kobeís final game started at 4:30 a.m. in Croatia. He stayed up for it, cheered live, cried, and the sun came up.

....you know...this is strange, but I'm more excited about this pick than I am about Ingram.

That's so messed up I know but he seems like a guy that will be a fan favorite here.

While Kobe is Zubacís hero, the player he wants to emulate on the basketball floor is Marc Gasol.

I don't. I'm guessing they'll fill out the roster and he takes Sacre's place.

Kevin Pelton ranks him as a top-10 pick. Pelton's track record with these type of picks is impressive.

Just watched his DX video, and that's the first impression I came away with. Seems to definitely fit the Bogut mold.
yeah. I'm optimistic about Zubac. He has the size to fill in the Bogut role. He probably needs to slim down a bit. He looked a little bit too heavy in the DX vids.

And he's freaking legit. Skilled as hell and a big boy.

Teams are selling good picks in the 40 range. We need to buy 1 or 2 more...could work out like Clarkson.

how can you not like this kid with all the skills he has on the verge? this kid has potential everywhere except shooting (85% FTs still).
post game is nice. great touch. good feet for 7'1 defensively, 7'4 wingspan. very good passer for age, makes quick reads as P/R passer. runs the floor hard. finishes strong above the rim. Imagine all of these things improving - he's only 19. great pick. and his frame is going to get stronger and he's already 270. he's drawn Marc Gasol comparisons. I won't go that far, but he's definitely in the mold of a Gasol/Bogut big skilled euro Center type.

I'm sure Luke is happy.

I'd imagine he spends most of his time in the D-League as a rookie. Sign him to a two year, minimum salary deal and let him get those minutes in the D-League.
