In his latest article, Bleacher Report NBA insider Jake Fischer revealed that two-time MVP Nikola Jokic wants to play with former EuroLeague MVP Vasilije Micic.
“Serbian point guard Vasilije Micic remains a hot name on the trade market. OKC holds his draft rights, and Nikola Jokic has been said to be a driving factor in Denver’s interest to obtain the EuroLeague MVP. San Antonio, Milwaukee and Chicago have also been mentioned as legitimate suitors. “
Micic is reportedly more serious now than ever when it comes to finally make the jump to the NBA. The Thunder acquired Micic’s draft rights from the Philadelphia 76ers in the Al Horford trade.
If he is to play in the NBA next season, it will not be for the Thunder as the team is rebuilding and has a logjam of young guards on the roster. Micic is better suited for helping out a playoff contender as a rotation piece.
The Nuggets, Spurs, Bucks and Bulls all fit that description. Jokic and Micic have previously played with each other on the Serbia national team.
