BJELICA'S TOP 5 PLAYS

WATCH VIDEO: EUROLEAGUE MVP NEMANJA BJELICA'S TOP 5 PLAYS

Bjelica is under contract with his Turkish team until July 1.

Flip Saunders, Wolves president of basketball operations, hinted Friday that Bjelica could wear a Wolves uniform this fall.

“I do believe that if he was a player who was in the [2015] draft, he would have been a top-10 pick,” Saunders said. “And so we’ll see what happens. But I’m optimistic. From what I hear from people is he does want to come over.”

Bjelica plays with the Serbian, Bodgan Bogdanovic.   He is not the brother of the Croatian Wolves G/F, Bojan Bogdanoivc.

Yeah, Bogdan is the better Bogdanovic, hopefully you'll get to know him on your side of the pond one day!
FYI current Fenerbahce roster also includes Jan Vesely and Andrew Goudelock.

Btw, to help you remember the spelling, maybe it's useful to understand where it comes from: Bjelica = Бјелица comes from Бело = white (bijela in Croatian, biały in Polish etc.) so the j and l aren't really there by accident :)

BJELICA UPDATE

ESPN.com

It took five years, but theMinnesota Timberwolves' 35th overall selection in the 2010 Draft may finally be coming to America. Euroleague MVP Nemanja Bjelica opted-out of his contract with Turkish team Fenerbahce Ulker at midnight, giving him the opportunity to play in the NBA. The arrival of the stretch-forward could force the Minnesota front office to make a move, according toJerry Zgoda of the Minnesota Star Tribune:

"The Turkish team Fenerbahce Ulker overnight announced that Euroleague MVP Nemanja Bjelica has exercised an opt clause in his contract to leave for the NBA, That clears the way for the Wolves to sign him, five years after David Kahn drafted him 35th overall in the 2010 NBA draft. Expect Bjelica to sign a three-year deal worth at least $12 million, possibly more ... That's one more frontcourt player -- Bjelica is a natural "stretch" power forward who has the skills to play small forward, but you'd have to probably hide him defensively at that position

Bjelica Amongst The Timber

NEMANJA BJELICA

Quote
MINNEAPOLIS -- After a quiet start to free agency, the Minnesota Timberwolves are on the board with some much-needed experience for their bench.

The Timberwolves agreed to terms with Euroleague MVP Nemanja Bjelica, adding their 27-year-old second-round draft pick from 2010 to a promising young roster.

"I'm excited to announce that I intend to sign with the Minnesota Timberwolves and fulfill my dream of playing in the [NBAFO]," Bjelica said in a statement issued Monday. "Thank you [Coach] Flip Saunders and the rest of the organization for the confidence you have shown in me. I'm looking forward joining the team and helping it become a contender."

The three-year contract is worth $11.7 million, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press, and cannot be signed until Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.
