Fenerbahce big man Jan Vesely looks to be in line for a return to NBA next season.

Vesely, who spent three years between 2011 and 2014 in the NBA with the Washington Wizards along with a stint at the Denver Nuggets has an NBA-out clause in his contract for next season.

It is rumoured and reported by Basketball Insiders that the Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks are all showing an interest in the 27-year-old, 7-footer.

Following his three years in the NBA, Vesely returned to the EuroLeague where he starred for Partizan Belgrade at the 2010 Final Four in Paris and joined Fenerbahce for the 2014-15 season.

The Czech Republic international made an immediate impression and guided the Istanbul unit to their first Final Four. Vesely has returned to the season-ending EuroLeague weekender for the next two seasons.

Vesely averaged 11.9 points for the season as he helped Fenerbahce to a maiden EuroLeague victory in Istanbul last month. He has another year to run on his contract as well as having the NBA-out clause.
