Nikola Pekovic To Miss EuroBasket For Montenegro 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Aug 6, 2013 4:58 pm

Nikola Pekovic will miss EuroBasket 2013 for Montenegro due to the fact that he is still in contract negotiations with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Montenegrin Basketball Federation announced on Tuesday.

"After talking with him and his manager yesterday [Monday] we were informed that the contract has not been signed and that it will take some time for details of the agreement to be clarified," Montenegro's national teams director Danilo Mitrovic said in a statement.

"Therefore, Nikola Pekovic will not play at the EuroBasket in Slovenia."

Good. I would rather have him not play over the summer and have him fresh for the NBA season instead. He already has had some trouble with nagging injuries over his first 3 years.

Coincidence? I doubt it. I'm sure Pek will have his contract after the EuroBasket is complete.
