Dangubic is still under contract with Serbian team Mega Vizura, but as Sportando indicated, his owner has a policy of an NBA opt-out once the NBA team is ready to bring him to the states.

His desire to help his loved ones is the reason why he left them in the first place at the age of 13. Milicic grew up the son of two parents with little knowledge of basketball. Sports and athletics were not a priority for the family in Yugoslavia. They were trying to make it each day in a war-torn country. "My parents did everything they could to survive," Milcic recently told CSNNE.com. "They did a lot of stuff, a lot of stuff. My mom was working a lot of jobs in her life, my father too. My father also worked on the side to make money." CSNNE.com

The 13-year-old would have to live on his own and learn how to support himself. Milcic made the move. "[I lived] by myself," Milicic, now 27, said. "I was making money then playing basketball, I signed a contract when I was 13. It's easy [to support yourself] because we go through a lot of [stuff] as young guys back home, so we are by 13 already grown. You can go by yourself. It wasn't hard for me. During the bombings we went through a lot of [stuff]. For me, it was good to play basketball. I didn't think about [being on my own] because it was just two hours from home." CSNNE.com
