Vucevic, along with power forward Andrew Nicholson, has been with the club since the start of the rebuild. He doesn’t feel its sudden swoon this season warrants the Magic playing let’s-make-a-deal. “That’s no reason to think we need to change anything. We have to find a way within each other to get back to what we were doing early in the year,” Vucevic said. “We just got to find a way to get out of this [slump]. “Trades or whatever … I don’t think about that — that’s not my job — and I never will.”

Q: It’s no secret that the NBA want a franchise in Europe, how do the players feel about that? Nikola Vucevic: Obviously it would be nice for us European players if you had a franchise in Europe but I think it would be hard to do because of the travel. It takes a long time to get from Europe to the US and also the time difference would really affect the players as well so I don’t know if it’s doable. Obviously it would be great for the NBA to have a European franchise but I don’t know how it would work out but I don’t know if it’s doable for geography reasons.

It is 10 years since the awful train crash you had. Has that been a motivating factor in your career or is it something you push right of the back of your mind and something that you don’t like to be reminded of? Nikola Vucevic: I don’t like to think about it too much. You know obviously it was a horrible tragedy for everyone who was involved and for the whole country of Montenegro. So I don’t like to think about it too much, it’s something I don’t wanna look back at, I can say I was very lucky to survive such a bad crash and you look at your life differently once you’ve been through something like that but I try not to think about it too much because it obviously doesn’t bring a lot of happiness.
