Real Madrid leader, Sergio Llull, commented on the decision of Nikola Mirotic to join Barcelona.

Here is what Llull said, per Marca:

On Mirotic signing with Barcelona: “Every one of us was a bit surprised by this signing because it was the biggest news of the summer.

He is a great player and a very good addition for them. One more challenge for us to face in the coming season.”

On Nicolas Laprovittola joining Real Madrid: “Everyone knows how Nico plays and the quality he has. A player who ended up being the MVP of the ACB League and that’s not easy at all. I’m sure Nico will bring us many positive things.”

On him playing for Spain in the Basketball World Cup: “Happy and also very excited. We always compete to the maximum and we hope to get as far as possible and qualify for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

I hope that the World Cup will be a turning point in my game, I will try to give 100% and I will contribute my bit to reach as far as possible with the national team.”
