Misko Raznatovic Rumors
As translated by Serbian reporter Sasa Ozmo, Micic’s agent, Misko Raznatovic, said that Micic is “ready to be a great player in the NBA, but I am not sure that it will happen this year.” Raznatovic reportedly went on to say, “if the NBA is not good enough and fair enough towards him, they will have to wait for (Micic) for another year.”
Misko Raznatovic is among the most influential basketball power brokers in Europe. Based in Jokic’s home country of Serbia, Raznatovic represents many of the best young players across the continent within his agency, BeoBasket. He represented Jokic prior to the draft. And on June 16, 2014, he tweeted that he was pulling Jokic out. “I woke up in the morning, and we really had no guarantees that he would be drafted, so I didn’t want to take the risk. So I put this tweet out,” Raznatovic told The Athletic.
The Nuggets selected BeoBasket client Joffrey Lauvergne in the second round in 2013, and Raznatovic respected how they operated. There was a mutual feeling that if Jokic ended up in Denver, the Nuggets would do right by him. “We were able to have a pretty clear vision,” Connelly said. “Agents trusted us at that point. We weren’t drafting your guy to have him sit overseas in perpetuity. Certainly, Joffrey’s agent was Misko and Excel, and they’re great. So it helped our reputation a bit. We had such a positive experience with Misko and Excel, so when we were trying to entice Nikola to keep his name in the draft, the previous relationship definitely helped us.”
3. Vasilije Micic (Anadolu Efes): The 6-foot-5 Serbian guard has his draft rights retained currently by the Thunder. While some have speculated he could make the jump to the NBA, his agent, Misko Raznatovic, denied having talks with any clubs for next season at this time. Still, Micic has drawn the attention of NBA teams with his play. “He’s almost an elite passer,” one NBAscout told HoopsHype. “He’s a good shooter, both on and off the dribble. He’s not athletic but has enough strength after his first step to get at the rim once he gets a runway. He’s very smart. His basketball IQ is off the charts.”
