Vesely agreed last week to re-sign with Fenerbahce Ulker of Turkey on a three-year contact, EuroHoops.net reports. Initial reports in June indicated that Vesely would rejoin Fenerbahce on a two-year deal, but his contract will apparently keep with the Turkish powerhouse through the 2019 campaign. The deal is largely has no bearing on Vesely's opportunities to return to the NBA, as each year of the contract contains an NBA out clause that the former No. 6 overall pick in 2011 could choose to exercise. Vesely has already stated that he will remain in Turkey in 2016-17, but the 26-year-old, who has shown signs of growth as a player since flaming out following stints with the Wizards and Nuggets during the 2013-14 season, remains an international player that NBA organizations will continue to track.
Vesely agreed Saturday to a two-year, six-million Euro contract extension with Fenerbahce Ulker of Turkey, Sportando reports. Vesely, the No. 6 overall pick by the Wizards in 2011, has played with the Turkish club the last two seasons after an ill-fated three-year stint in the NBA. Despite the struggles early in his career, the 26-year-old had a breakout campaign with Fenerbahce in 2015-16 and had drawn interest from NBA teams for a possible return to North America. That still could be on the table at some point down the road, as Vesely's new contract includes a buyout clause that would allow him to explore an NBA opportunity in the summer of 2017.
Wizards forward Jan Vesely is expected to sign with Fenerbache Ulker of the Turkish Basketball League according to Sportando, likely bringing an end to the former lottery pick's time in the NBA. Over three disappointing seasons, the 2011 No. 6 overall pick averaged just 3.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in 162 appearances.
Nuggets forward Jan Vesely made his return from a bruised left rib cage on Friday, scoring just five points in a 133-102 loss to the Nuggets.Vesely shot 2 of 4 from the floor, and 1 of 4 from the free throw line.
