Nikola Pekovic will miss EuroBasket 2013 for Montenegro due to the fact that he is still in contract negotiations with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Montenegrin Basketball Federation announced on Tuesday.

"After talking with him and his manager yesterday [Monday] we were informed that the contract has not been signed and that it will take some time for details of the agreement to be clarified," Montenegro's national teams director Danilo Mitrovic said in a statement.

"Therefore, Nikola Pekovic will not play at the EuroBasket in Slovenia."
