Nikola Vucevic - Montenegro and Orlando Magic

4. Nikola Vucevic (Montenegro)

Filling the shoes of a franchise player when they skip town for the brighter lights elsewhere is never an easy task, but Montenegrin big man Nikola Vucevic went a long way to patch up the gaping hole left inside the Orlando paint when Dwight Howard jumped ship, finishing the 2012/13 NBA regular season with a 13.1-point, 11.9-rebound double-double average. Vucevic's impact at EuroBasket was limited as Montenegro bade farewell to Slovenia following the opening round but he has returned to Orlando to continue his habit of collecting double-doubles.
