NBA Rumors: Playoff Teams Interested In EuroLeague MVP

The Oklahoma City Thunder own the rights to a lot of valuable assets for teams scouring the trade market. Most notably a number of high draft picks in coming seasons. But they also own the rights to an intriguing prospect, Vasilije Micic, the EuroLeague MVP in 2021. And according to Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, he's in demand.

Micic wants to come to the NBA, but has made it clear he does not want to play for the Thunder, who own his draft right. Fischer report states that several playoff teams, including the Milwaukee Bucks and the Chicago Bulls, have expressed an interest in acquiring Micic from the Thunder. 

In fact, many executives expected Micic to be moving to the Denver Nuggets in the recent trade that sent JaMychal Green to OKC for the No. 30 pick in this month's NBA Draft. Instead, the Nuggets received a couple of 2nd round picks along with #30.

The 28-year-old, 6'5" playmaker, Micic led Turkish club Anadolu Efes to the 2020-21 EuroLeague title.
