Sasha Pavlovic Rumors
David Pick: Serbian free agent Sasha Pavlovic turned down an offer to join Turkish club Galatasaray, according to source.
Partizan Belgrade fans want Sasha Pavlovic back and he will decide his future soon, a source told Sportando. Pavlovic talked with Partizan today and an agreement between two sides is very close. The player will likely make a final decision tomorrow.
Stotts said Victor Claver, who did not travel with the team on the trip to rehab his sprained left ankle, “probably” will return to practice on Tuesday. Sasha Pavlovic, who has an ailing right quad and also skipped the trip, most likely will not.
NBA veteran Sasha Pavlovic knows Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts better than most of his teammates, having played with the Mavericks in 2010-11 when Stotts was an assistant coach in Dallas. Pavlovic, 28, is entering his 10th NBA season and will look to catch on in Stotts’ rotation to see some time at shooting guard and small forward. The key to his success this season? He says “I just have to play free and play my game.”
