The Croatian Times called to get Kukoc's reaction to being named as a "beneficiary" of the elite ring's services. He didn't seem all that worried about it.

"I was in worse situations in life," he said. "What should I do? Return home to Split? Of course I will stay in Osijek."

Last week, physiotherapist Nebojsa Perunovic Pance was arrested and charged with pimping a network of starlets, would-be models and other glitterati to rich businessman. A Croatian newspaper, Jutarnji List, wrote that one young woman was told to offer sexual services to Kukoc.

Kukoc spent seven seasons in Chicago and helped the Bulls win three NBA championships during his time here.
