This guy might be the only hope of the Raps redeeming that draft class, Charlie V, Graham and Ukic, the last pick might be the best of them all. I can remember yelling at the TV when they didn't take Granger with the 7th pick and when he was still around at 16th I almost sh*t myself when they didn't take him. In my mock we took Granger at 7 and Ukic at 15, i'm glad Ukic dropped down to 41 for us because he was WAY overlooked. I can't believe guys like Nate, Diener and Jack got taken over him.

"The 6-foot-5 Ukic has been steady, if unspectacular, in the first four games of the tournament. One NBA assistant coach in attendance expects him to have the same impact in the NBA a steady backup who will have good nights and bad in a rookie season getting acclimated to the game."



Doesn't exactly fill me with a ton of confidence, but it's good to know from reading the article that he's at least pretty self-aware and humble when it comes to his game and things he's got to work on.

Sounds like Croatia is turning some heads too, which can do nothing but good for the kid's confidence coming in.

I'll be interested in seeing Calderon vs Ukic match up when they play in the Quarters.

It's sick how many Raptors fans on here (myself included) wanted Granger with that #7 pick and the Raptors passed on him twice.

Ah well.

I love Ukics size at the gaurd position. gone are the days of opposing teams simply pulling up and shooting over our gaurds with ease. ala...martin dixon ford.
