Nikola Kalinic It is one of the jewels of the market this summer. The Serbian forward of 2.02 meters and 29 years has the claim to dispute the next Euroleague, something that the Valencia Basket cannot offer you, as you will participate in the Eurocup. The taronja club’s options to renew him are scarce, but he has included the player in the right of first refusal and will be able to match any offer that comes to him from a club in the Endesa League to retain him.

The forward’s name has been linked several times to Real Madrid, who is looking for an eaves that supplants the march of Gabriel Deck and that, as the Argentine did, on specific occasions he can also act as a power forward. However, that Valencia has included Kalinic in the right of first refusal would hinder his arrival at the white club.

The taronjas could match the offer and keep him. The other option is that the two clubs reach an agreement not to go to trial in exchange for financial compensation for the Valencians, who are tough negotiators. And they demanded a large amount to free Victor Claver, which ended in the Barça, and given the possibility that they included Alberto abalde in the score, Madrid signed him a year earlier, paying 1.5 million euros.

In total there are 20 players that the ACB has announced that they are subject to scoring: Kyle Alexander, Kwan Cheatham, Obi Emegano and Melo Trimble (Urbas Fuenlabrada), Ondrej Balvin and Jaylon Brown (Bilbao Basket), Facundo Campazzo and Gabriel Deck (Real Madrid), Tyler cavanaugh (Lenovo Tenerife), Scott Eatherton and Juan Pablo Vaulet (BAXI Manresa), Steven Enoch (Obradoiro), Conner Frankamp (UCAM Murcia), Elias Harris and Dylan Ennis (Casademont Zaragoza), Pierria Henry, Achille Polonara and Luca Vildoza (TD Systems Baskonia) and Nikola Kalinic (Valencia Basket)

In addition, there are six players who have expressed their intention to return to the ACB and who were subject to the right of first refusal when they left: Pako Cruz (Urbas Fuenlabrada), Patricio Garino and Darrun Hilliard (TD Systems Baskonia), Mindaugas Kuzminskas (Unicaja), Deshaun Thomas (Barcelona) and Will thomas (Valencia Basket).
