You said from the beginning that you would wait on the end of the lockout in USA. When did you change your mind? Jan Vesely: Initially there was a thought that the NBA would start at the end November or the beginning of December – and nothing happened, no deal. Even with a deal, it will take a month before we can start playing games. It looks bad, we’ll have to find something. Maybe I did a mistake not finding something sooner. Truth About It

Nikola Pekovic (210-C-86, agency: Beo Basket) and Acie Law (190-G-85, agency: Priority Sports, college: Texas A&M) will maybe get company from NBA in black and white jersey. The 28 year old Sasha Pavlovic (200-F-83) was seen tonight on Pionir stands. He came to watch the big Euroleague game against Real Madrid and Serbian journalists took the chance to interview him during the halftime break: I folow almost every game on TV and tonight I came to see live this important game for Partizan. Euroleague is a very strong competition this year and I would like to feel the taste of it. I work out individually every day. If the negotiations between the owners and the players representatives don't move in the right direction I will definitely sign a contract with a European team. Maybe even Partizan, who knows? I love the fans here... Eurobasket.com
