Vasilije Micic addressed the possibility of leaving Anadolu Efes and signing with an NBA team.

The Serbian guard made it clear that he does not want to just move to the NBA. In case he decides to sign with an NBA team, Micic said he wants to have a significant role.

“This is my style of play. I could play fewer minutes, play a smaller role but I think that during my career in Europe I have already gained the status of a player that shows I could play a role that is longer than 20 minutes, which is what might be waiting for me in the NBA.
