Luka Brajkovic is hoping for a second round chance at the Friday Night NBA Draft (CEST) in Brooklyn, New York.
“That would be really perfect,” explains the Vorarlberger in the run-up to the annual selection of the best young players by 30 clubs in the world’s strongest basketball league. If it doesn’t work out, “I’d like to play in the summer league and make a contract like that,” says Big Luka of APA.
The 6-foot-1 forward will be following the draft at Davidson, where he has played college basketball for the past four seasons and also graduated a few weeks ago.
As an “older”, the 22-year-old achieved his career best with an average of 14.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 29.5 minutes of play. He is currently the NCAA Atlantic 10th Player of the Year.
Does a dream like Jacob Boltel’s come true?
Brajkovic, who turns 23 on Sunday, announced his entry into the NBA draft two months ago. Feldkircher said he made the decision after discussions with his family and coaches.
He wants to make his dream come true. The Vorarlberger has been training in Orlando for a few weeks. Among other things, he was invited as one of 24 players to the Tampa Bay Pro Combine. Earlier this month, he completed his first practice session with the Charlotte Hornets.
Brajkovic only receives external recruitment opportunities. With Jabari Smith (19), Chet Holmgren (20) and Paolo Banchero (19), the top three talents in this year’s selection process are three “big men” who are younger. Orlando Magic first choice.
The only Austrian player in the world’s strongest basketball league is Jakob Boltel (26). The overall 9th Viennese was drafted in 2016 by the Toronto Raptors. The 2.16 meter tall center has been playing for the San Antonio Spurs since 2018.
