Nikola Mirotic is in Barcelona. The new Barça star signed this Sunday and also spoke for the first time since joining the Club. "I feel happy and very excited," the big man said. "Just like my family, and I'm eager to meet people at the Club and also in the city."
In addition, the native of Montenegro said he had "received lots of calls and messages from friends and family."
"It was a surprise for many," he continued. "But I have gotten a lot of support from the people who love me. And when I'm happy, my family is happy, and we're very excited to do things the right way."
Mirotic also spoke about his time in the NBA. "I grew a lot in the United States, the last two years were the best. I played on good teams, but I missed the competition in Europe, the Liga Endesa, the Euroleague, and the Copa del Rey. I was looking for stability for my family. I had a chance to participate in a nice project and it was a very good opportunity for me to come here."
