Bostjan Nachbar (Slovenia) won't play in eurobasket
Ticker reports: Slovenia forward Bostjan Nachbar has decided not to play at EuroBasket 2007 and will instead focus on playing well in the last year of his contract with the New Jersey Nets.
The 26-year-old just completed one of his finest seasons in the NBA since joining the Houston Rockets as a rookie in 2002. In 2006-07, the 6-9 Nachbar played in 76 regular-season games and averaged career highs in points (9.2), field goal percentage (45.7) and rebounds (3.3).
Nachbar has been a mainstay on the Slovenian squad along with fellow NBA players Rasho Nesterovic and Primoz Brezec, and European-based stars Sani Becirovic, Jaka Lakovic and Marko Milic.
