Nikola Milutinov Rumors
The calf injury suffered mid-August by Nemanja Bjelica ultimately pushed him out of Serbia’s Eurobasket roster. The official announcement came and while Nemanja Nedovic is included in the final selection of coach Pesic, Bjelica is out. The roster of Serbia that has emerged as one of the top Eurobasket contenders is the following: Vasilje Micic, Ognjen Jaramaz, Nemanja Nedovic, Vanja Marinkovic, Marko Guduric, Nikola Kalinic, Dejan Davidovac, Marko Jagodic-Kuriza, Vladimir Lucic, Nikola Jokic, Nikola Milutinov, Dusan Ristic.
Serbia was the winner of the first 2022 Supercup Semifinal, edging out Italy, 90-86, Friday. Back-to-back NBA MVP Nikola Jokic was the difference-maker in Hamburg, Germany. His team-high 18 points included the go-ahead bucket with 1:05 left in the exciting prep game. Additional production of ten rebounds and five assists in a 24-minute showing for the Joker. Captain Vladimir Lucic, Anadolu Efes superstar Vasilije Micic, and CSKA’s Nikola Milutinov all contributed 15 points each.
Serbia defeated Montenegro 82-73 in a game played without spectators. It was the first test for the Serbs with Nikola Jokic scoring 16 points, Vasilije Micic adding 13 and Nikola Milutinov 12 points. Nemanja Bjelica played but did not score. Marco Simonovic and Bojan Dubljevic scored 17 points for the losing side.

In an interview with Eurohoops, Nikola Milutinov says that San Antonio had no intentions about bringing him over to the NBA as well as saying the Spurs didn’t show interest in adding him. “To go there, I need to be invited to go there. I never had something official from them. It was only just talking. They were never serious about taking me, and I cannot go there by myself. They need to show me their will to take me and they didn’t in the previous years. I don’t regret it.”
Recently, Milutinov signed a three-year contract with CSKA Moscow but says he does not completely rule out the NBA. “I don’t think about the NBA because I know where I will be next season. Maybe in the future I will think about it again about going there.”
