Luka Samanic scores first points of NBA career, goes for 16/6/3 in start

Spurs 2019 first-round pick Luka Samanic scored his first NBA points in his first ever NBA start Thursday, going for 16 on 5-of-10 shooting with three triples, six rebounds, three assists, one block, and one turnover.

Fantasy Impact

Samanic had only played two games in his NBA career prior to seeing 31 minutes in a start Thursday night against the Jazz. The minutes came out of nowhere, but Gregg Popovich decided to get a look at one of his two first-rounds pick this season. The other was Keldon Johnson, who impressed in his own right throughout the re-start. This was a good test for Samanic, who seemed to pass with flying colors based on his performance.

Luka Samanic drafted 19th overall by the San Antonio Spurs

Luka Samanic drafted by the San Antonio Spurs with the 19th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Luka Samanic is an extremely talented combo forward. On paper he can do just about everything on the offensive end of the floor. After dominating the NBA combine he rose up draft boards and lands in a perfect situation with Gregg Popovich who excels at player development.
