David Blatt had the opportunity to work with Nikola Milutnov during his stint as the head coach of Olympiacos and he has gained a high opinion of the Serbian center:

“A great signing for CSKA. Milutinov is, in my opinion, the best center in Europe, he knows everything on the court. At the same time, he is still young, he is just starting his path. Nico is great now, but has the potential to become even stronger. At the same time, he has an excellent character, he is good as a teammate,” he told RIA Novosti.

Milutinov signed a three-year deal with CSKA on June 2. He was putting up 10.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per EuroLeague game with Olympiacos until the early conclusion of the 2019-20 season.
