Will 2022 Be Nemanja Bjelica's Year?

Many Golden State fans were delighted when the franchise secured the signature of veteran center Nemanja Bjelica last off-season. With ample experience at national and international level, he was seen as the perfect player to offer flooring space, height and squad depth in a roster likely to be stretched by a grueling season and hampered by injuries.

Warriors' Nemanja Bjelica: Goes for 19-12-6 in win

Bjelica contributed 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and two blocks over 30 minutes during Sunday's 109-90 win over Sacramento. With Otto Porter and Klay Thompson resting, Bjelica had a chance to see extended action off the bench. The veteran responded with easily his best game in several months, if not his best performance of the entire season. At this stage in his career, Bjelica doesn't have much utility in season-long leagues, but he's been a solid addition for a deep Warriors team.
