J.R. HoldenAndrei Vatutin talked to Sport-Express and seemed quite realistic when informed about Barcelona's interest in JR Holden.

"I am not really surprised that the Catalans are interested in JR Holden. It would surprise me if they were not interested in him. I think he is a top class player and definitely one of the best point guards in Europe, at the moment.
Of course Holden has the right to carefully negotiate with any team regarding his future since he is a free agent but I am confident that he will wait to hear our offer too, once we sort out the financing of our team for the next season. 
We will be announcing our budget for the next season shortly, it is a matter of days."
