Rookie Rodions Kurucs (Latvia) was impressive in 12 minutes for the Nets on Wednesday as he dropped 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and four steals.
Kurucs was an afterthought in the 2018 draft with the Nets taking him 40th overall. His debut, however, shows that his background playing in Europe erases comparisons to any out-of-college counterparts he may have. Kurucs might end up being developed in the G-League this season but don’t be surprised if you see him called up and deliver games like this one. He can be left undrafted in fantasy leagues for now.
