Nikola Mirotic's days in Barcelona are numbered. However, a significant question mark remains regarding his future.

Despite various reports about Mirotic's future, the highest-paid EuroLeague player has not received a specific offer regarding the terms under which the Catalan club would seek a compromise to terminate the contract, sources tell BasketNews.

It is precisely these moves that other EuroLeague club officials are waiting to start making their bids for Mirotic.

MIN: 24.97

Barcelona's settlement offer would allow other clubs to cover a portion of the remaining agreed upon in the original contract.

Under such circumstances, Fenerbahce invited Nick Calathes to join their team last year on more favorable terms, and Monaco did the same with Mike James the year before.

But with an annual Mirotic salary ranging close to 5 million euros, even on a discount, only a handful of EuroLeague teams have the opportunity to recruit one of the best power forwards in Europe.

BasketNews looked at the most realistic destinations where Mirotic will most likely be seen next season.
