Partizan has included Frank Kaminsky in the extensive roster of NBA Draft lottery picks and players who have enjoyed fairly lengthy careers in the NBA. This stands in contrast to numerous European players who have excelled in the sport’s premier league.

“If you’re a good player, it doesn’t matter where you started, where you were born,” Kaminsky said. “The NBA is a very demanding league and Europeans are starting to come and play very well and Americans like me are starting to come here. We know how good the level is here, how good the whole experience is.

“Speaking for me, I have the opportunity to play again, which I haven’t had often in the NBA lately, and it played a big part in my decision. I really want to play again and make an impact in a team that will star. I want to claim titles and win them.”
