Mladen Sekularac (55th pick, 2002)

- In April last year, I wrote this Sekularac update:

Sekularac was projected to be a sweet shooting 6'8 swingman, much like Bojan Bogdanovic projects to be (or is) in the upcoming draft. But M-Sek never panned out due to injuries. Injuries kept him out for all but one game of last season as well - the first game of the year - yet finally, after 18 months on the shelf, Sekularac returned to action when he signed with Bosnian team Igokea Aleksandrovac in March. (Not to be confused with the bigger Serbian team, Partizan Igokea.) Igokea Aleksandrovac are not an Adriatic League team, playing only in the Bosnian league, yet March saw them pull off a triple whammy of big signings when they landed Sekularac, LaVell Blanchard and Jamar Butler. Not sure how they did this, but they did this.

Statistics are not available for Rack, other than to say he totalled 8 points in 24 minutes in their last game.


True to form, injuries have been the story since then as well. Sekularac missed time down the stretch of the season due to injury, this time with his thumb. As of the time of writing, Sekularac does not appear to have played anywhere this season, and it's getting a bit late for him to do so. His rights, like those of Steve Logan above, were included as a token piece of the Erick Dampier to Dallas trade, but that was the last time they were relevant to anything in the NBA.

Mladen Sekularac fact - Mladen Sekularac is the son-in-law of Rajko Toromon, the Serbian head coach of the Philippines national team.

Chances of making the NBA expressed as an arbitrary percentage: 0%

- Mladen Sekularac

Another former Mavericks draft pick - although his rights are now owned by the Warriors - Sekularac was projected to be a sweet shooting 6'8 swingman, much like Bojan Bogdanovic projects to be (or is) in the upcoming draft. But M-Sek never panned out due to injuries. Injuries kept him out for all but one game of last season as well - the first game of the year - yet finally, after 18 months on the shelf, Sekularac returned to action when he signed with Bosnian team Igokea Aleksandrovac in March. (Not to be confused with the bigger Serbian team, Partizan Igokea.)

- Lonny Baxter

Baxter's having a better season than usual, averaging 18.4 points and 6.0 rebounds in 27 minutes per game in the Turkish league while playing for Besiktas. He also averages 12.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in the Eurocup, although that involved scoring 58 points in his first 3 games and 26 in the last 4. Besiktas are third in the Turkish league, partly because of Baxter, but largely because of 6'2 guard Mire Chatman. In 36 minutes per game (out of 40), Chatman is averaging 17.8 points, 6.3 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 2.8 steals per game. And those are Turkish assists, which are a rarer species than American ones. The 60% foul shooting for a 6'2 guard is poor, but everything else is Kidd-like. (Albeit in Turkey.)
