Victor Claver confirmed the interest of Real Madrid by speaking to the Spanish radio station “Cadena Ser” but denied that there’s a deal yet, even if it’s rumored that there’s a three year contract waiting him. As the Spanish forward said: “Real Madrid is interested on me , but for now, nothing is done. I am waiting. My priority is to be part of a Euroleague team. I have received calls from Euroleague teams, the options that I have are very good but I am waiting. I would like to be clear about my future as soon as possible but does not depend only on me. I have to wait”.
You talked about your return from the NBA. While you were there, you were mainly frustrated with your inactivity and lack of playing time. Do you feel you got the chances you deserved in Portland? Victor Claver: In the NBA it is hard to find a spot in the rotation. Especially when you are not a top draft pick. My rookie year was relatively good and I was playing. Not in every every game, but I was receiving some fair time on court. Then my injury came that put me out of the team for quite some time. Everything was different in the second season. The team simply changed a lot. There was fewer room for me in the rotation. The chances to play were decreased. When I realized my situation I just wanted to take advantage of being there. It was the only thing I could do. To work every day with the assistant coaches, trainers, the strength coaches etc.
