A certain someone might be making his decision tonight (or did he)…?

LEBRON TO DECIDE (OR SO WE THOUGHT)

We purposely delayed this column, as it was rumoured that basketball’s biggest free agent, LeBron James would possibly make a decision on his future.

We waited until the early hours, but no word has come out yet. James, who has been spending some time at his own basketball camp with Dwayne Wade in Las Vegas could make his decision before he flies out to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup Final.

He could make us wait until after Sunday night though. Fact is: LeBron has the ENTIRE basketball world under his power right now.

JOKSIMOVIC JOINS NOVO MESTO

Slovenian international Nebojsa Joksimovic has left Union Olimpija Ljubljana for their bitter rivals Krka Novo Mesto.

Statement via the ABA Liga:

Slovenian international guard Nebojša Joksimović has reached a decision with Krka for the forthcoming season and will therefore move from one Slovenian ABA League member Union Olimpija to their biggest rival Krka Novo mesto, which has beaten the Dragons in the finals of both Slovenian national championship and cup last season.

Krka is the 5th ABA League team, that Nebojša Joksimović is a part of, after he previously played in our regional competition wearing Zlatorog’s, Hemofarm’s, Igokea’s and Union Olimpija’s jerseys. Besides the mentioned teams, he also played for Koper, Lokomotiv Kuban and Scavolini Pesaro in his career. In 2005 and 2013 he was a member of Slovenia senior national team, while he wasn’t selected to this year’s preliminary squad of the national team by the new head coach Jure Zdovc. Last season he averaged 6.1 points, 3.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game in ABA League.

The agreement with Nebojša Joksimović means that Krka has almost completely composed their squad for the forthcoming season, since they are now only looking to add another player, a new center, to their squad.
