Barcelona star, Nikola Mirotic, referred to his decision to leave the NBA and sign with the Catalans during the offseason.

Here is what the versatile forward told the Spanish newspaper Sport:

“There’s not one single reason but many. The most important ones are family reasons and that I missed Europe. The European style of basketball. I was in an area of, let’s say comfort. And I like to be a better player every day.

There [the NBA] I was an important player but everything was about two or three stars. Although you were a starter, it was very difficult to make a jump, be something else. I always wanted to be a leader and fight for more titles.”
