Jan Vesely Quotes:
After consulting with my coach Mr. Dusan Vujosevic, my Agent and my family, who has always been very supportive of me in every decision that I have made in the past, I made the decision not to enter the 2010 NBA Draft.
I have decided to stay and play for my club BC Partizan for the next season.
Basketball is my life, something that is very important to me, and I want to continue to learn more.
My Coach Dusan Vujosevic and all of the staff of BC Partizan have been great to me ever since I have arrived to Belgrade, Serbia. Because of my coaches, my teammates and the best fans in the world, Belgrade is a place that I will always call home.
Playing in the NBA has been my dream since I started to play basketball. But, to be ready for this, I feel now is the time for me to continue to work hard to realize that goal in near future.
Alexander Raskovic, Jan Veselys agent:
After very strong two seasons with coach Vujosevic, and under his high quality work, developing his skills and all-around game, Jan has garnered a great amount of attention from NBA teams. Predictions and estimations of his possible lottery position in the 2010 NBA Draft have become realistic. So, it was very important for me, and Jans coach to make right estimation what he should do in this moment of his career.
Staying one more season in BC Partizan with his coach will probably increase his stock and possible position for the 2011 NBA Draft.
I believe Jan has made right decision to mature and improve as both a person and as a basketball player. He will have strong progress with his career, skills and maturity of the game. His time is coming.
One more season with coach Vujosevic will lead him to think about what his future could hold for him. The NBA is something that is certainly within his reach.
