Not only is Belgrade basketball factory working in three shifts with many overtime hours, but its main export (i.e. promising centers) is overachieving expectations. Just after Miroslav Raduljica was transferred to Efes Pilsen, another gifted center has left FMP Zeleznik, an average team with great basketball academy located in the suburbs of the Serbia capital.
After a successful 10-day trial period, Caja Laboral Baskonia head coach Dusko Ivanovic signed seven-footer Dejan Musli, former star of the Serbian Super League, to a five-year contract. Musli was born in 1991 and has been a key player in international youth tournaments.
Despite rumors that Musli will be loaned to a team in the second Spanish league, Caja Laboral president Josean Querejeta has assured that the Serbian talent has a great chance to stay on the main team. The 19-year-old Musli has already earned dozens of awards and medals in junior competitions, playing on a club or the national squad.
