Partizan brings back big man Koprivica

Partizan NIS Belgrade took one more step towards the new season with its eighth announcement for the summer, the addition of young big man Balsa Koprivica, who returns to the team for a three-year agreement. Koprivica (2.16 meters, 21 years old) is the son of Slavisa Koprivica, a player of the Partizan team that won its only EuroLeague title in 1992, the first of many for coach Zeljko Obradovic, who also returned to Partizan this summer. He took his first basketball steps with the team of the Serbian capital, but soon moved to Florida in the United States, where he played both in high school and college teams. In his second year with the Florida State Seminoles, Koprivica averaged 9.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks. Now, he returns to Partizan, where he will make his pro debut and also his 7DAYS EuroCup debut under legendary coach Obradovic.
