Nikola Vucevic efficient from the floor

Vucevic has fired out of the chute with 27.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.7 blocked shots and 1.0 steals per game through his first three outings. He likely would have done more, but he was rested for a large chunk of the second half, playing just 28 minutes, with the game well out of hand and the reserves getting longer looks.

  • Nikola Vucevic scores career-high 41 points

    Those 3-pointers were obviously a career high, and all that offseason talk of him adding 3-pointers may have not sold it enough. Vucevic is in a great spot with the Magic playing more up-tempo and he's still been able to do work on the glass. He wasn't in demand on draft day, but so far he's looking like a bargain.

  • Nikola Vucevic has 19 & 13 w/ defensive stats

    Vuc made 6-of-12 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with just one turnover tonight. He also attempted three 3-pointers, which is encouraging even though he didn't make any of them. After making 30.7 percent of his 75 attempts last season, it looks like Vuc could make a real impact beyond the arc.

  • Nikola Vucevic resting on Tuesday

    He's the only starter that hasn't rested so far in the preseason, so he was due for a night off. Vucevic has expanded his range over the offseason and hit three 3-pointers in four games, so there's no reason why he can't improve on his top-50 finish in 9-cat leagues. Marreese Speights and D.J. Augustin will also take the night off.

  • Magic confirm Vucevic will take more treys

    "I think it creates lots of things for us offensively and a lot of space that we need," Vucevic said. We saw him make two 3-pointers on Thursday, so this quote certainly matches up with what we saw on the court. He's always been a solid mid-range shooter and there's been buzz on this topic for a few months, so it's possible he can make 1.0 per game. Vooch is a fine pick in the middle rounds.

  • Nikola Vucevic scores 14 in 14 minutes

    He's dropped some weight and there's been some added stress on Vooch making some 3-pointers, so the two today are certainly noteworthy. He may be moving down in the scoring pecking order, but Vucevic was still a 17-11 guy after the break last year. After the big-name centers come off the board, Vooch is in the mix to be targeted in the middle rounds.

  • Nikola Vucevic drops five pounds

    Five pounds isn't exactly saying much, but Vooch having any motivation to adjust his game is noteworthy. The Magic are going to play much differently this year than how they played to start last year in their failed double-big lineups. Vucevic isn't the sexiest fantasy pick, but he's a fine option in the middle rounds after the bigger names come off the board.

  • Nikola Vucevic's 16 points not enough

    Kristaps Porzingis was the better man today, dropping 19 points in 22 minutes. Vucevic finished 7-of-15 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line, adding nine rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes. Unlike last season, Vucevic enters the 2017-18 campaign as the unquestioned starter at center in Orlando ahead of Bismack Biyombo and is an excellent value at his current mid-round ADP.

  • Nikola Vucevic double-doubles in win over CZE

    Early on this summer, there was the obligatory report implying that Vucevic would work to expand his range this offseason, but through four games at the EuroBasket tournament he's attempted just one 3-pointer per contest while connecting on 25 percent of those attempts, so Vuc establishing himself as a knockdown shooter from longrange is unlikely to become a thing. Still, he was a top-30 guy after the break last year, so he'll make for a fine mid-round selection on draft day, regardless of his shooting range.
