Great news for European basketball! Double reigning MVP of the EuroLeague Final Four, Vasilije Micic will continue to defend the colors of Anadolu Efes Istanbul.

Eager to leave for the NBA this summer, so much so that he had publicly declared it, Vasilije Micic (1.96 m, 28 years old) will not ultimately cross the Atlantic and will stay at the Anadolu Efes Istanbul. The reason ? His rights belong to the Thunder, and the Serb had no desire to take part in the rebuilding process of OKC. The double European champion (and double MVP of the Final Four) demanded a trade but the franchise of Sam Presti had no intention of selling off his rights.

Result, the deadline for his NBA buy-out was exceeded last night and Vasa Micic still belongs to the bosom of the Thunder. In fact, he will continue to honor his contract with Anadolu Efes Istanbul, which runs until 2024. Huge news for the Istanbul club which can legitimately aim for a European hat-trick with a major five potentially made up of Shane Larkin, Vasilije Micic , Will Clyburn, Achille Polonara and Ante Zizic. Amath M’Baye was also recruited by Ergin Ataman.

Hero of the EuroLeague semi-final against Olympiakos with an epic buzzer beater in Belgrade, the former Zalgiris Kaunas combo-guard was shooting 18.2 points on 47%, 2.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists decisive average this season on the continental floors.
