Vasilije Micic, Thunder Likely To Wait Until After Draft To Decide On 21-22

Jun 13, 2021 1:10 PM

Vasilije Micic has emerged as one of the top players in Europe and his NBA rights are owned by the Oklahoma City Thunder following last year's trade with the Philadelphia 76ers involving Al Horford.

Micic was the 52nd overall pick in 2014 and currently plays for Anadolu Efes in Istanbul. Micic was MVP of the EuroLeague this season.

Micic and the Thunder each appear to prefer to wait until after the draft to make a decision on whether he will join the team.

Micic's agent, Misko Raznatovic, recently said he doesn't want him to have the same fate as Vassilis Spanoulis, who played sparingly in his one season in the NBA.
