Partizan adds front line depth with three talented youngsters
Partizan NIS Belgrade invested in its future by inking three talented big men, Marko Pecarski, Djoko Salic and Dimitrije Nikolic, to multiyear deals. Teenage center Pecarski (2.08 meters, 17 years old), who was acquired from a fellow 7DAYS EuroCup side FC Bayern Munich, has been dominant in youth categories against players couple years older than him. Pecerski is fresh off helping Serbia win gold medal at the U18 European Championships this summer where he averaged 12.6 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. Last season, while still 16 years of age, he dominated for U18 FC Bayern Munich at the Adidas Next Generation Tournament in Coin, where he posted 19.7 points and 14.3 rebounds per contest. Pecarski, who made his professional debut with Mega Bemax Belgrade, is now set to make his EuroCup debut, while Djoko Salic (2.10 meters, 22 years old) is ready to make a return to EuroCup, and also Partizan, team he already played for in 2013 and 2014, and played limited minutes in seven Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and four EuroCup appearances during that span. Last two years, Salic spent half a season with OKK Spars Sarajevo in his native Bosnia and Herzegovina, and played for Sutjeska Niksic in Montenegro, and averaged 14.9 points, 5.5 rebounds in Montenegrin League games. Partizan also signed center Dimitrije Nikolic (2.11 meters, 20 years old) who passed the tryouts, after playing last season with Radnicki Kragujevac in the Serbian lower divisions.
