Nikola Mirotic likely to declare, though not overly excited by NBA

(Translated)

Nikola Mirotic, whose stock in the NBA grows in parallel to a strong performance that is offering in the Real Madrid, has acknowledged that "chances are that I submit to the next 'Draft', but want to be here as much."

"I like the NBA, but does not attract me as much as other kids," said the young talent and Spanish of 2.08 m. and 20 years Lucas Saez-Bravo in an extensive interview with the newspaper 'El Mundo' ( see the interview on your daily El Mundo or Orbyt ).

"I am very happy at Real Madrid and want to continue being and fulfilling my dreams," he said at the time Mirotic Nacho Duque in an interview with the newspaper Marca .

The power forward of Montenegrin origin has happened in just a year to fight for minutes in the Adecco Oro Palencia up every day in the pools facing the 'Draft 2011'.

Last season he averaged 8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 8.4 rating in 20.1 minutes in 31 games in the Adecco Oro, while this year their numbers ACB on a computer with the demand of Real Madrid are 8, 2 points, 4 rebounds and 10.2 rating in 16.6 minutes.

Mirotic, who was about to leave early season loan but opted to stay strong, has won the job and every day is a major player for the team selection merengue and Spanish, with lower levels which has been released.

The most optimistic estimate puts the number Mirotic 15 (draftexpress.com), while other less flattering you put the 44 (nbadraft.net) or 30 (mynbadraft.com).

If he has an apathetic

If he has an apathetic attitude towards coming over, I bet he gets picked up in the 2nd round by a team who can afford to hold on to his rights.

It might just be the "I like

It might just be the "I like the NBA, but not the Minnesotas and Sacramentos of the NBA" thing.
