ANDCroatian center Ante Tomic will play for Joventut Badalona until June 2025, after both parties have agreed to make the player’s remaining optional season effective and extend his contract for two more seasons, the club reported.
In this way, Tomic, 35, will finish his sports career in Badalona, ??where he arrived two seasons ago from Barça to become one of the great references of the Catalan team.
The Croat’s contract extension comes after having one of the best seasons since he landed in Spain to play for Real Madrid. In the Endesa League he averaged 14.3 points per game, 6.6 rebounds and 2.7 rebounds.
His contribution was decisive in the qualifying rounds for the title so that La Penya reached the semifinals first, where he fell in the fourth game against Barça after winning at the Palau Blaugrana.
Great performance in the playoffs
In the qualifying rounds for the title, Ante Tomic improved his performance compared to the Regular League with an average PIR of 22.3 and 16.6 points and 7.9 rebounds.
Once Tomic’s continuity is assured, Joventut’s goal is to get center Derek Willis to agree to continue in Badalona, ??while the team’s other power forward, Vladimir Brodziansky, will continue his career away from Badalona, ??in Turkish club Bahcesehir.
