Bosnian federation against Nurkic

By Aris Barkas/

Just hours after Jusuf Nurkic signed his contract with Denver Nuggets, he was declared a “traitor” by the Bosnian basketball federation. The player decided to leave the Bosnian national team training camp, saying he was injured after initially stating that he was tired.

However, the federation believes otherwise, saying that Nurkic “betrayed their trust” and left the national team without permission. According to the press release, Nurkic didn’t returned the calls of coach Dusko Ivanovic and the general secretary before leaving the team which prepares for the qualifying round of Eurobasket 2015.  It remains to be seen if the federation decides to punish the player. However any kind of punishment by the federation can’t apply to the NBA.
