Personal Bio

He left for the Adriatic League after one season and was selected by the Nuggets the following summer in the 2017 NBA Draft. He stayed in Europe and helped Slovenia to a gold medal in EuroBasket 2017, defeating Turkey in the finals. After two more seasons in Spain, Cancar made his way to the United States to sign his rookie deal with Denver.

College/International Summary

Cancar signed his first pro deal at the age of 18 with KK Olimpija of the Slovenian League. It was initially a five-year contract, but after one year in the Slovenian league, Cancar moved to KK Mega Basket of the Adriatic League. He was first selected by the Nuggets in the 2017 NBA Draft, but elected to remain overseas. Cancar signed with the Spanish club San Pablo Burgos and played out a two-year deal. He headed for the United States to sign his rookie deal with the Nuggets in August 2019. Cancar made his NBA debut on Oct. 31, 2019 against the Pelicans.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Despite Cancar's status as a recent draft pick, he's spent the past two seasons playing professional ball in France, Slovenia and Serbiam getting plenty of experience. Like many international players, Cancar is likely to continue playing in overseas, as he still has time left on his contract with Mega Bemax in Serbia. Cancar is a lengthy forward who can play multiple positions, which fits what the Nuggets have looked for in recent years. The fact that he shot 62 percent from the field in the Serbian League last season and shot 40 percent from the three-point line in Liga ABA and SKL the past two seasons is also an encouraging sign for his development as a floor-spacing big. Scouts believe he can still grow into his long body, as he's got a 7'0' wingspan and a height of 6'9” at the ripe age of 20. That said, he'll likely continue to develop overseas rather than making the Nuggets' regular-season roster.
