Team: Crvena Zvezda Belgrade
Position: SF
Age: 30
Height: 202 cm
Weight: 101 kg
Birth place: Subotica, Serbia

The 30-year-old player, who opted out of his contract with Crvena Zvezda a few days ago, will sign with Barca in case Valencia Basket don't equal the offer presented to him. Valencia have five days at their disposal to do so (until next Thursday, June 7).

Past that deadline, Kalinic will belong to Sarunas Jasikevicius' squad.

Nikola Kalinic's rights in Spain are still owned by Valencia. According to the 'tanteo' rules in the Spanish League, Barcelona must wait for Valencia to add Kalinic to their squad.

While Kalinic averaged 12.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists in EuroLeague last season with the Red Star jersey, he struggled averaging 11.4 point, 3.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists in the ABA League.
