Mickael Gelabale Receiving Interest From FC Barcelona

Aug 28, 2014 3:38 PM

Three-year NBA forward Mickael Gelabale is receiving interest on a possible deal with FC Barcelona, sources told RealGM.

FC Barcelona will be without two integral players next season, losing Kostas Papanikolaou to the Houston Rockets and Erazem Lorbek in a buyout agreement. The European powerhouse has Gelabale on a list of potential additions.

Lorbek’s NBA rights are owned by San Antonio, but the 6-foot-11, former Michigan State forward won’t join the Spurs this summer and will recover his body to full health before deciding on his next professional contract, a source told RealGM. Lorbek, 30, has already announced he’s unable to play in the World Cup for the Slovenian national team due to injury.

Gelabale averaged 5 points and 2.7 rebounds in 36 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2013. Some NBA teams planned to watch Gelabale perform for France in the World Cup.

Gelabale was a second round pick in 2005 to the then-Seattle SuperSonics, and played two seasons with the franchise and suffered an ACL injury that subsequently led him to the NBA Development League and overseas teams.

Saric: Best To Stay In Europe For Development

Mar 11, 2014 11:51 AM

Dario Saric will wait until after the current season to decide whether he will enter the NBA Draft, or possibly move from KK Cibona to either Turkey or Spain.

“I will not decide anything until the end of the season” said Saric. “In the summer I will determine my future. For my development the best is to stay in Europe but we’ll see what happens. I don’t even have an agent right now. I will talk with my family but I will make the final decision."

“There is not only Efes in the game. The other options are still Barcelona and Real Madrid” said Predrag Saric to 24Sata. “If Lorbek and Nachbar leaves Barcelona and if Mirotic leaves Real Madrid, they may have room for Dario” added the father of the player. “I think Dario should play in Europe two more seasons. He has to play. If he goes to a big club without guaranteed playing time, then it is better to stay with Cibona”
