Nikola Vucevic hopes he will have everything figured out in time for the Montenegrin national team gathering

By Stefan Djordjevic/

The Montenegrin national team will play the World Cup for the first time ever and is the smallest nation to do so with the population just over 600,000.

There’s no doubt that having the Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic in the roster would be huge for both the team and the player but he can’t give an answer yet. Not until he settles his free agency: “I’m waiting for the situation around the contract to be solved. Depending on where I’ll continue my career and will be the demands, I’ll decide on eventually playing for the Montenegrin national team. I hope I’ll have a clean situation far before the national team gathering scheduled for July 25, and be able to inform the staff and the public about my decision”, Vucevic told “Dan”.

The 28-year-old is satisfied in Orlando and although he’s been reading about teams being interested in him, Vucevic noted he didn’t have any official contact: “Officially, there’s nothing yet and I don’t have any information. The free agency starts on July 1 and until then any contact is forbidden. I’m satisfied in Orlando. This was our best season since I arrived. Everything clicked with the arrival of the new coach. We advanced to the playoffs surpassing all expectations and everything’s fine on that side. I’ve also been reading that many are interested but to be honest, I don’t know which teams want me. When I see all the offers, I’ll think and decide”, he said.
