OAKLAND, Calif. (AP)
The Golden State Warriors have selected Ognjen Kuzmic (oge-NEN KOOZ-mitch) of Bosnia with the 52nd overall pick in the NBA draft.
Golden State's final selection in Thursday night's draft may not be heading to the United States just yet. Warriors general manager Bob Myers had said the team would likely develop a player in Europe if it kept all four of its picks.
Kuzmic has played for Clinicas Rincon in Spain's second-tier league for only one season. The 22-year-old 7-footer is considered years away from being NBA-ready but the Warriors believe he's worth the development project.
The Warriors also selected North Carolina's Harrison Barnes seventh, Vanderbilt center Festus Ezeli 30th and Michigan State forward Draymond Green 35th overall.
