David Blatt had nothing but good words to say about Nikola Milutinov, who signed a three-year contract with CSKA Moscow.

Blatt, who coached Milutinov during his time with Olympiacos (2018-2019), called the Serbian center ‘the best center in Europe’.

“A great signing for CSKA. Milutinov is, in my opinion, the best center in Europe, he knows everything on the court. At the same time, he is still young, he is just starting his path.

Nico is great now, but has the potential to become even stronger. At the same time, he has an excellent character, he is good as a teammate,” Blatt told RIA Novosti.
