Basketball: “I think they didn’t treat me well”, Sasha Vezenkov explains his time at Barcelona and his adaptation to the NBA

This is not the first time that a dominant player in Europe has struggled to make a mark in the American league. Vasilije Micic and Sasha Vezenkov (Euroleague MVP and finalist last season) are no exceptions to the rule. After joining the Sacramento Kings, the Bulgarian saw his progress halted by an injury.

While things seemed to be going better for him, Sasha Vezenkov saw his rise brought to a halt by an ankle injury. Aware that opportunities in the NBA are not numerous and do not last very long, he returned to his situation and spoke about his future during an interview with Mundo Deportivo. “Two years before being drafted, I could have tried to go to the NBA, it would have been easier and then I didn't play much in Barcelona. I left and at Olympiacos, obviously, the last three years, I really played and then the opportunity presented itself. I think I can help in my role. But right now, like I said, I can't think too far ahead, just be healthy and help the team for now." he analyzed.

He also mentioned a return to the Catalan club. “At Barcelona I had difficult years, I think they didn't treat me well, but not the people who run the organization, I have a great relationship with Juan Carlos Navarro and I learned a lot from him. I have friends in the organization, I never say no, but it feels like my time there was hard for the team and for me. I can’t predict the future, but I have friends that I really respect.” did he declare.

“Juan Carlos Navarro, he's a legend, I learned a lot from him, we have good relationships and good conversations when we see each other. As I said, I have something left, but not with the club, but with people who are no longer there. Vezenkov finally concluded, not closing any doors on his future.
