Hungry Jack's NBL
Vasiljevic’s Kings Promise
Sydney guard Dejan Vasiljevic has committed to the harbour city, saying if he returns to the NBL, it will be with the Kings.
Vasiljevic is coming off a strong Grand Final series, where his clutch shot in Game 2 catapulted Sydney to a 2-0 lead. The Kings would eventually win Game 3e and sweep the Tasmania JackJumpers to win their first title in 17 years.
The 25-year-old has revealed the South East Melbourne Phoenix have shown interest in him, but he has declared the Kings will be his NBL home next season.
“There was a lot of talk and I think South East Melbourne were after me, but if I do return to the NBL it will be with the Kings 100 per cent,” Vasiljevic said via Newscorp.
However, the sharpshooter will explore his overseas options before signing a new deal.
“I think I’m going to explore the option of going to Europe and testing out the NBA Summer League and see if I can crack a training camp roster and go from there,” Vasiljevic said.
“There are a lot of things we can’t control though. I mean, whatever players we can get back, that would be amazing.
“Obviously, when you win, everyone’s price goes up and everyone has got their own dreams and paths, so who knows.”
