Euroleague star Alexey Shved has drawn quite a bit of interest from a number of teams in the NBA, and reportedly turned down contract offers from teams such as the Phoenix Suns, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, and Memphis Grizzlies this offseason.

According to Obrad Fimic, who is Shved’s agent, says that the probability of Shved signing with an NBA team will increase next summer, when teams will have more money available.

“Every year there’s active interest for Alexey from NBA teams,” Fimic said, according to Hoops Hype. “This summer, New Orleans, Minnesota, Memphis and Phoenix expressed a willingness to sign him.”

“Next year, Alexey will still be under contract with Khimki, but we’ll be carefully considering offers from the NBA,”, said Fimic. “Everyone says the NBA team will have more available money next summer. Therefore, the probability of his departure will increase”

Currently, Shved plays for Khimki Moscow and it looks like he will remain there for at least another year as he awaits the right opportunity in the NBA.

“I don’t close the door to the NBA, I waited for offers from the USA” Shved said. “There were several options that didn’t suit me. “

The Boston Celtics have been on the upswing of late and Celtics’ guard Kyrie Irving is crediting a recent team meeting, following a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, as the catalyst for the turnaround.

The loss to Milwaukee back on December 21st was the Celtics’ 3rd in a row and dropped their record to 18-13 on the season.

“We could pinpoint a lot of turning points,” Irving said, according to Jay King of The Athletic.

“We just want to build that chemistry first. Just getting with one another (after the Bucks loss), really put everything out there and then move on from that point. At that point, playing against Milwaukee, we weren’t at rock bottom, but we needed to address some shit in this locker room. It’s just good to get stuff out in the air.”

Irving believes in this team’s chances this season, despite the early struggles.

“We’re not on a good team, we’re on a great one,” Irving said. “We have the talent to be great.”
