After winning the EuroLeague with Anadolu Efes Istanbul, the Serbian guard Vasilije Micic was involved in discussions with several NBA teams in order to take a big step in his career.

However, the ideal conditions for Micic and his future outside of Europe were not found and he remained with the EuroLeague champions for another season.

The general manager of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Sam Presti, spoke at the presentation for the upcoming season, saying that at one point they were quite close to the agreement with Micic.

"He's [Micic] really taken off since the time in which we acquired his rights," said Presti.

"All I can tell you is I thought we were pretty close at one time. He is on a contract, and he's committed over there. But I wouldn't rule anything out. It's probably a year-to-year thing," Presti explained the situation.
