"They have stars on their team, and Teodosic, I loved him when I saw him in the World Championships in '10, Bogdanovic is a rising star. Their big guys (including former NBA big man Nenad Krstic) are good, they're well coached, and they're strong. They can hurt you from many different positions. "They're just playing great basketball right now. Actually, it's beautiful to see. I hope I don't see that beauty tomorrow night." USA Today Sports

And when all the pressure is on the other team, as it will be for the United States on Sunday, it can be an enormous equalizer. Just ask Spain. “We’re not going to be scared, for sure,” Krstic said. “Some players never get this chance — the chance to do something great in our lives.” SheridanHoops

Then bonuses received by European players such as living quarters, car and/or driver, maids, expenses/utilities paid by the club, etc., may be added. These perks vary from club to club, but we can figure in that amount in addition to salary because NBA teams do not pay for such amenities. The 2.0 multiplier is actually in most cases a conservative estimate as in most cases, it is actually even higher than double in terms of difference between gross and net income. Using these bonuses from particular clubs, applying multipliers, and rounding the figures (as is customary among NBA agents), we get the following as the top 10 NBA salary equivalents in European pro club basketball. 1. Deron Williams – $10.3 million per season NBA salary equivalent. 2. Mehmet Okur – $10 million. 3 (tie). Nenad Krstic – $8.9 million. 3 (tie). Rudy Fernandez – $8.9 million. Ball In Europe

Contrary to prior reports, Nenad Krstic does have a buyout clause in his two-year contract with CSKA Moscow, and it’ll cost him $1 million to return to the NBA for the 2012-13 season. Krstic revealed the buyout terms Friday in an exclusive interview with SheridanHoops.com following Serbia’s 87-77 loss to Greece in a classification game at EuroBasket. The loss cost the Serbs a chance to qualify for the 2012 Olympics at next summer’s pre-Olympic tournament in early July. “Actually I have a one plus one,” Krstic told SheridanHoops. “So after the first year I can go back to the NBA. It’s my option, the second year. I can stay if I want, or if I have offers from the NBA I can accept them.” SheridanHoops

“It’s tough to say now (what will happen in the future), but I can say I am proud to be a member of one of the best teams in Europe with a great history. I always dreamed of playing in the NBA, that was always my goal, and maybe someday I will try to come back,” Krstic said. “I followed the EuroLeague on the Internet and on TV, but I didn’t play there for like 10 years, and it’s one of the things where I don’t know exactly what to expect. The NBA is the best league in the world. I’m going to miss playing with the best players in the world, plus the lifestyle. SheridanHoops

According to website HoopsHype.com, several players in addition to Williams and Songaila had signed with European teams as of early last week. Still other NBA players are reportedly at least considering overseas deals. While Williams’ deal includes an opt-out in case the NBA lockout ends, Songaila’s does not. Bartelstein said NBA players are convinced there will be a long lockout. Boston Celtics center Nenad Krstic had every intention of exploring the NBA free agent market if not for the lockout, said his agent, Marc Cornstein, president of Pinnacle Management Corp. But when CSKA Moscow came calling, “he got offered a tremendous contract by Moscow,” Cornstein said. Sporting News
