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.
