Suitcases for the “magic world” of the NBA are being prepared by Alexei Pokushevsky.
The Oklahoma City Thunder selected the 18-year-old Serbian forward of Olympiacos at number 17 of the NBA Draft 2020, giving the Minnesota Timberwolves Ricky Rubio and the picks No. 25 and No. 28!
Pokushevsky will get an excellent four-year contract, with the first two seasons guaranteed for $ 6,078,000.
The most likely scenario is for the young ace to spend his first time in the G-League, in order to strengthen his body and then take the big step for the top league in the world.
Olympiakos has also won the case, since in order for Pokusevski to move to the USA, the Thunder will have to give Olympiakos about 1.5 million dollars.
The Thunder were very active, as they also acquired Al Horford from the Sixers, while they also took the rights of Vassilie Mitsic.
