Report: Vasilije Micic To Sign With Bayern Munich, Won't Come Over In '15

Roberto Serra/Iguana Press

A real bummer for a player fans could get excited about.

It's starting to look like the Sixers won't be seeing at least two of their recent draft picks at all until at least 2016. With Dario Saric locked in to a deal with Turkish club Anadolu Efes, it looked like 2014 2nd round pick Vasilije Micic may be the first to show Philadelphia some eastern European love as his deal with Mega Vizura expired in June of 2015. That no longer seems to be the case.

According to Eurobasket and Sportando contributor David Pick, the Serbian point guard will sign a contract with German club Bayern Munich (not the footballing Munich).

EuroHoops and Sportando confirmed the deal is a three year contract with an NBA opt out after two seasons, so no Micic until 2016. Bayern Munich is coming off a 2014 German Cup Championship and is growing quickly, but the competition out there isn't necessarily as strong as in the top flight Spanish and Italian leagues. The German BBL league is considered pretty on par with the competition he faced in Serbia, which wasn't always the best.

Regardless, it's a real drag for Sixers fans, although being forced to wait to get what they want is nothing new at this point. Micic is the perfect backup point guard, a real good offensive facilitator who can let the three ball fly a little. He's very competent in the pick and roll, and would be a real nice change of pace to Michael Carter-Williams.

The goal for Micic still seems like it's to get to the NBA eventually, but unlike Saric that doesn't seem to be definite. If he eventually comes over, spectacular. If not, at pick #52 a player as talented as he is was worth the risk.
