Nikola Mirotic talked about his decision to leave the NBA after five years and return to the EuroLeague to sign with Barcelona.

Mirotic said his decision to return to Europe was ‘a step forward in his career’.

“There are people who want to be in the NBA, even if they don’t play. But basketball in Europe is of a high level, the EuroLeague is becoming more competitive, the Liga Endesa is being tremendously strong and, for me, this is a step forward in my career. Now, I have to prove something again,” Mirotic said in a video interview for Sergiobasket Vlogs.
