Nikola Mirotic will not be part of the Spain roster for the Olympic Games, barring a last-minute change, according to AS. Mirotic, 30, prefers to focus on his family after a complicated year at a personal level rather than following up the demanding season at the club level with the bubble expected for the Tokyo Games, notes the report. Perhaps FC Barcelona teammate and Spain legend, Pau Gasol, can change his mind but it seems the decision has been made.
Just a few hours after the completion of the 2020-21 EuroLeague season which didn’t end in the desired way for FC Barcelona, the team seems to be setting sights on its reinforcements for next season. According to Carrusel Deportivo’s Antoni Daimiel, Barcelona GM Juan Carlos Navarro has Marc Gasol at the top of his agenda for next season’s plans and will “try everything” to bring the Lakers star back home.
“This operation must not be ruled out for the future”, said Daimiel. If so happens, and assuming that Pau Gasol continues his run with Barcelona, fans will have the chance to see the two brothers competing side to side for the Blaugranas.
Donatas Urbonas: Guerschon Yabusele is in advanced talks with Real Madrid, per sources. Hearing that Yabusele is weighing his NBA options. But from what I’ve heard, if it’s not the NBA, then he’ll likely go to Madrid.
