NBA Rumor: Vasilije Micic to Thunder?

12 rumors in this storyline

Vasilije Micic on offers received during the summer: ‘There were some 90 percent clear offers from the NBA, not 100 but 90 percent about details in the contract. And of course, I didn’t expect any promises like minutes-wise, but a kind of a role with Oklahoma [City Thunder]. And when I realized that Oklahoma was still not sure, because they had actually one and a half months extra with the NBA draft to see how many players they would take and what they would want to do with the trades, for me it was too long to wait. It was too long, especially when I had that offer from CSKA [Moscow]. Of course I spoke with Efes. I wanted to give them priority, if they could offer me something similar. I’m happy that they understood that I wanted to stay here and not leave just because someone said that I had to leave.’

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”.

Vasilije Micic: “They were pushing me to the skies, I was always realistic about myself. And after that, I said that I would not plan anything. Honestly, right now I am just thinking about how to stay calm, to finish this season, because that’s what makes me feel relaxed. Of course, I am aware of the NBA rumors, there’s something in the air, but I have not made any decision yet. This is something that I have kind of experienced before and I like to stay grounded. I think it’s something that’s going to come up soon, the season is ending soon. And sooner or later I may have to make this decision”.

Visilije Micic to the NBA not a done deal

Sasa Ozmo: : HMicić to NBA not a done deal. His agent @MiskoRaznatovic , speaking to @Novostionline : He is ready to be a great player in the NBA, but I am not sure that it will happen this year. I won’t allow for Micić to have the same faith NBA as Vassilis Spanoulis did, to sit on the bench. “Micić won’t go until everything is right – maybe this year, maybe not. Everything is still open – if the NBA is not good enough and fair enough towards him, they will have to wait for Vasa for another year”.
