David Blatt worked with Alexei Pokushevsky at Olympiakos and is one of the most suitable to talk about one of the top prospects of this year’s NBA draft.
“There is still a long way to go. He has not played the strongest basketball. He has to mature, find a team that will be very patient with him and develop him.

He was incredibly talented and had a fantastic level of competitive spirit. “This must be shown by Poku to become the player that many believe he can be,” said the American-Israeli coach for the talented Serbian player of the Piraeus team.
