BIOGRAPHY: While the 19-year-old Macvan has the size to play in the NBA, his game may need a little more seasoning. Teams that desire potential over finished product might take a flyer at the young Serbian, who is projected to be selected in the second round if at all. In 41 games in Adriatic League and Eurocup play with KK Hemofarm Stada Vrsac, Macvan averaged only 11.0 points and 4.3 rebounds, but knocked down 52.6 percent of his shots and connected on one-third of his 3-point attempts. In the 2008 Under-20 European Championships, he performed better against players his own age, averaging 16.9 points and 6.6 rebounds over eight games. During the annual Nike Hoops Summit in April, he had 23 points, 14 assists and six rebounds to lead the World team over the United States' high school all-stars for the first time since a Dirk Nowitzki-led squad won in 1998. At his current size, Macvan is a tweener. He's a little undersized to play at center, but his bulk - some of which is considered baby fat - could make him a tad slow in matchups with power forwards. At his young age, Macvan still has time to grow and develop his physique for the next level. While he might take time to learn how to play in the NBA, Macvan could make a nice role player for a team looking for bench help.
