Pesic "The Bulls made an offer to Mirotic of 45 million"

Svetislav Pesic, Barca coach, revealed in an interview that the Montenegrin power forward rejected two NBA offers before signing for Barça.

The signing of Nikola Mirotic for Barcelona continues to speak. The Spanish-Montenegrin decided to leave the NBA, a league in which he has played for the past five years (Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Pelicans and Milwaukee Bucks) to return to Spain. However, his decision has not been made due to the lack of opportunities and offers in North America.

According to Mozzart Sport, the new power forward coach, Svetislav Pesic, has recognized in an interview in the 'In the Hoop' program that Mirotic had several suitors in the NBA before accepting the offer for Barcelona: "He I had two NBA franchise offers. I know one of them was the Bulls, which offered him about 45 million gross dollars (about 40 million euros). "

The Barca coach also wanted to point out that the figures They have said about their agreement with Barça are not real. "When a player of his caliber returns to Europe despite this offer, many wonder if the reason for his return is money. He has a contract according to his quality, but the figures reported are speculative, not to say lie ", settled the Serbian.
