Anadolu Efes ended a three-season dream run with the EuroLeague title last week and GM Alper Yilmaz looks ahead to the “next day”, with so much interest drawn on EuroLeague and Final Four MVP Vasilije Micic and the sensational Shane Larkin. Yilmaz admits that if both desire to pursue their next goal overseas there’s nothing he can do from his side, while he wants both to succeed after offering Efes its first-ever EuroLeague trophy.
Alper Yilmaz: “They have a desire to play in the NBA, and they deserve it until the end. I don’t know if they will go if they get a good offer, but I know they are happy at our club. There’s nothing I can do if they really want to go to the NBA, but I think players who have helped us so much, we should help them achieve their dreams. Of course, the issue of how to fill their place is a bit of a challenge, but we do not prefer them to leave. If they go, we will do our best”.
You’ve said that you’ve had some offers from the NBA during the past summer, but Anadolu Efes’ role satisfied you the best. Did you have a guaranteed offer from an NBA team that you came close to signing with? Shane Larkin: I had a multi-year guaranteed deal in the NBA. It was good money, similar money to what I was going to be getting here in Efes, but things just didn’t work out the way that we wanted them to and now I’m back in Efes. I’m happy to be here and I’m happy to have another opportunity to win a EuroLeague championship. It would’ve been a great opportunity, but things didn’t work out. It’s all good and I’m back in Efes where I love to be. Back in a country where I love living. I love my life, love my situation here in Efes, love being in Istanbul. We’re now going to make the best out of this season and try to get what we’ve been chasing for the last three years.

Now, if an NBA team is interested in him, it must guarantee him 18 to 25 minutes, a chance to shoulder “true responsibility” right away and designate him an “important piece of a franchise moving forward.” At the same time, he admits, “most players don’t make that jump from EuroLeague to being a starting point guard in the NBA.” “I will not go back to the NBA as a third point guard,” Larkin said. “So, if any team asks about that, we’re not even gonna answer the phone.”
