Maccabi made an offer for Begic
Maccabi made an offer to buy promising slovenian center Mirza Begic(2.20-C) from Olimpija Lubljana according to ekipa.org. Begic's contract was recently extended until the end of the 2011 season. Hence Olimpija reserves the right to sell the player if they wish to the highest bidder. At the moment the current buy-out that Olimpija is willing to offer for the player is 500,000 euros.
Maccabi's offer though wasn't even close to that size and the administration of Olimpija rejected the offer without even thinking about it. Begic averaged 11.1 points 6.1 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in 10 games in the Euroleague.
