The Phoenix Suns held the last pick at No. 30 overall in the 2013 NBA draft, an important pick in NBA history because it would be the last time commissioner David Stern stepped to the podium to announce a first-round selection in the NBA draft.

No. 30 overall for the Suns and Stern’s last call turned out to be Nemanja Nedovic of Lithuania.

Here’s NBA.com’s thoughts on Nedovic:

Nedovic will likely be a late second round pick. He would likely need to stay in Europe for some time in order to keep working on his weaknesses. He has the athleticism and strength to defend NBA point guards. He’s good in transition and in one-on-one situations, but needs to work on his shooting and point guard skills.

Nedovic is an athletic swinger who will make the Suns better if he sticks around. Knowing the world of the NBA draft, Nedovic could be traded at any point. That, or we’ll see him in a few years with the Suns after he develops.
