Serbia Defeats Spain, Nemanja Bjelica Shines
The Minnesota Timberwolves traded with the Washington Wizards at the 2010 NBA Draft. The Wizards drafted Serbian power forward Nemanja Bjelica with the 35th overall pick and exchanged with Timberwolves. Bjelica appears to have some potential, as his Serbian team knocked off Spain at the World Championships. Bjelica finished with 14 points in 14 minutes. Rubio did not play that well and only finished with 3 points. Bjelica isn't expected to join the Timberwolves until 2012. Kevin Love and Team USA beat Russia 89-79 to advance to the next round.
