Even without the head coach for the next season at the moment Cedevita has done masterful move in the form of signing shooting guard Marko Car (6’3”/189cm/1985).
Car finished last Croatian A1 League season as the 2nd best statisticly ranked player overall, trailing only to F/C Luka Zoric. Car led the league with 21.7 points per game and 5.0 assists per game, to go along with 1.9 steals per game.
Proven clutch shooter who spend last three seasons with Zadar is a definite improvement for Cedevita’s backcourt and the perfect complement to Croatian NT PG Dontaye Draper.
Here is his brief statement: “I feel really great with a new carrer turning point and new challenge right in front of me. The negotiations went quickly and I am very pleased to enter such a straight and ambitious environment such as Cedevita.”
With Car in town Cedevita will probably consider it’s options in regards to contracts with veteran guards Robert Troha and Vedran Princ who both had below average season.
This move also has strategic importance in the sense of taking over one of the key competitor’s players. Cedevita will now look forward to add more size in the frontcourt department.
