According to Bosnian Basketball Federation secretary Denver Nuggets offered to Jusuf Nurkic a contract but only if he plays NBA Summer League.
Jusuf Nurkic declined to play NBA Summer League because he wants to play for National Teams, U20 and A team.
“Nurkic will join the National Team Under 20 on July 5 to play Eurobasket B Division and then he will join the senior National Team. But we are in a comical situation. Denver Nuggets want to sign Jusuf Nurkic to a contract but just if he plays in the NBA Summer League. However, Jusuf doesn’t want to change his plans because he wants to play for Bosnian National Team. His agent called us begging to accept Denver Nuggets’ proposal to play in the Summer League. Honestly, we did not know how to answer him. It is a ridiculous to ask us to let a player leave. Nurkic has a terrible desire to play for the National Team. He loves his country and we are all pleasantly surprised by his attitude” said Harun Mahmutovic.
Apparently it's Jusuf Nurkic personal wish to play in European U20 Championship and Eurobasket qualifiers, all in one summer. #patriot— Igor Marinovic (@sofoklo13) July 2, 2014
