Mirotic picks Europe over National Basketball Association

Nikola Mirotic surprisingly leaves NBA for Euroleague team report says Nikola Mirotic was expected to be one of the top free agents on the market when it opens

Instead of waiting for offers in free agency, Nikola Mirotic has chose to return to the EuroLeague for next season.

In a surprising move, Nikola Mirotic has chose to leave the National Basketball Association to sign with Euroleague club Barcelona, according to multiple reports. He was later excised from coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation in the Eastern Conference finals against the Toronto Raptors, playing just nine minutes in Game 5 of that series before not playing at all in Game 6.

According to Charania, Mirotic stood to sign a deal worth $45-50 million.

Before being drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 2014, Mirotić played for Real Madrid, earning the EuroLeague Rising Star award during the 2010-11 season.

The news certainly comes as quite the curveball as Mirotic was standing as one of the more desirable stretch forward options on the open market during this year's free agency.

He averaged 15.2 points and 7.4 rebounds while shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc last season, splitting his time between the Pelicans and Bucks as he was traded at the deadline.

National Basketball Association insider Marc Stein is reporting that teams were preparing three-year offers in the $45 million range for Mirotic.

Still, Mirotic had entered the summer as an intriguing fit for many teams, thanks to his elite shooting ability as a big man.
