    Hell there's no guarantee he leaves even for us (though I'd say it's highly unlikely he won't come 3-4 years down the road), but with a small market team like Orlando, it's safe to say that he'll be near worthless for them.

    Basically it's sort of like the value of currency in countries with unstable economies (see: Albania or USSR 20 years ago). It has worth to the citizens living their, but it's value is significantly lower to foreigners or international trade.
    Disagree, all of the world's best basketball talent comes to the NBA. Its the place where they can potentially earn the most money during their careers.

    To some Euro players that is not enough. They want to play in large cities and get more exposure

    Let's also remember that Mirotic is getting time playing at a very high level in an International league that behind the NBA isamong the best on the world. If he makes the Spanish national team for the Olympics next year (Don't think Montenegro will field a basketball team) then that is additional experience at a high level without ever having played a minute in the NBA. I know nothing compares to the tempo of the NBA but heck this is great experience nonetheless.

    Not true at all. Plenty of Europeans have been more than happy to stay in Europe their whole career. ACB is the second best league in the world, they're comfortable there and make boatload of cash anyway.

    Yeah, Im sure a lot of NBA GMs agree with you. Ill bet Derrick Rose also had no value when he was at Memphis.
    Very bad comparison.

    This is true which is why Rudy will mostly sign with his Spanish team after the season is over.

    Exactly.
    Or Juan Carlos Navarro, or Fran Vazquez who never even came to the NBA after drafted by the Magic. Hell even the Splitter pick was laughed at because so many people thought he wouldn't come.

    People who think NBA is still the mecca for all basketball players are incredibly close-minded. There are other very good leagues out there and many players prefer much more to stay at home with their family and still make boatload of cash with a still very competitive league where they don't have to live in a different culture.

    There's a reason that for all the talent that Omer, Rudy and Mirotic etc. had, were drafted so late. There's always that chance that they would rather stay in Europe.

    I tried to put it nicely the first time, but you pretty much have no idea what you're talking about.

    It will be two years before we see this guy in a bulls uni. I think he will be worth the wait though.

    Stats from ACB game Saturday: 20 points, 7 rebounds and 26 minutes played.
    I look for Mirotic to become more of an option for RM now that Rudy Fernandez in back in the NBA. Will post stats for each game going forward.

    Maybe we should Sticky this thread and just call it the Mirotic thread?
