Panellinios tabs Ivan Radenovic
Aug 07, 2008
Panellinios has announced the arrival power forward Ivan Radenovic, who signed a one-year contract with his new team. Radenovic (208, 24) averaged 8.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15 ULEB Cup games last season with Akasvayu Girona. He shocked everyone with his outstanding performance in the ULEB Cup Final Eight, however, as he had 10 points in Akasvayu's win against Unics Kazan in the quarterfinals and added 20 to make his team beat Dynamo Moscow in the semifinals - in just his first start of the season. Even when Radenovic led his team with 20 points in the title game, Akasvayu lost against DKV Joventut. Radenovic has also played for Partizan Belgrad in Serbia and the University of Arizona in the United States. Radenovic had extended his contract with Akasvayu, but the club could not match the economic standards required to compete in the Eurocup or the Spanish League due to its difficult financial situation.
