As it’s rumored almost for a week, Valencia has made an offer to Nemanja Nedovic, but an other Spanish team entered the race in order to sign the Serbian guard. According to Eurohoops sources Laboral Kutxa also made its move for the player and his fate seems to be tied with Thomas Heurtel. After being cut by the Warriors, Nedovic has to clear weavers in order to sign with a European team and as he said to Serbian newspaper “Novosti” he would like to return to Europe in order to get minutes on the court, despite having the dream to play in the NBA. There have been reports about NBA interest towards him, specially by Utah, but there’s nothing imminent on the table.
