ORLANDOMAGIC.COM: The day that Vucevic signed, he said that he feels like he is just now entering his prime and that last season wasn’t some random career year. Do you agree that he can be even better? CLIFFORD: “I just don’t see that he did anything that he wouldn’t be capable improving on this year. It’s not like he shot the ball really well from 3-point range, it’s not like he shot 43 percent and won’t be able to keep that up. I think he’ll shoot it even better this season. “The thing that goes unnoticed with him is that for as good as he was offensively, he was very good defensively. He put a lot into last season and he’ll be back here next week after playing in the World Cup. But, I do agree with him that he’s in his prime. Talent comes in different ways. He’s not a high flyer, but his basketball IQ and his decision-making for a man his size – there’s not many who can do all the things that he can do.’’
Montenegro head coach Zvezdan Mitrovic seems to have liked what he saw at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers, keeping the core of the team intact for the Final Round in China. Among the 11 returning players, Nikola Ivanovic, who averaged 14.0 points and a team-high 4.8 assists, and all-around big man Bojan Dubljevic are set to form the trio of leaders together with the big-name addition of Nikola Vucevic. The latter, who had breakthrough 2018-19 season with the NBA Orlando Magic, had last featured for his country at FIBA EuroBasket 2017.
