The Cáceres World Heritage Site has closed this Monday the signing for the green-black first team of the skilled Duje Dukan (Split (Croatia), December 4, 1991), with experience in American basketball and in the Endesa League.
He is a player who has a wide reading of the game, a good shooter and who moves well in the low post, which is why he stands out for his versatility, Extremadura coach Roberto Blanco has assured, who expects him to provide security and open the field to the team this piece that was missing in the green and black squad.
Dukan, who has dual American and Croatian nationality, played 31 matches in LEB Oro last season with TAU Castelló, averaging 6.9 points and 2.4 rebounds, with percentages of 48.7% in shots of two and 32, 6 in triples, in 16.3 minutes on the court per game.
In addition, the 2019/2020 season played 19 games in the highest category of Spanish basketball with Movistar Estudiantes, with 5.3 points and 2.1 rebounds.
In the United States, he trained in Deerfield (Illinois), passing in the 2010/11 season to play in the NCAA with the University of Wisconsin for five years. In the 2015/2016 season he signed for the Sacramento Kings, making his NBA debut with 6 points and 4 rebounds in one game.
To this must be added years of experience in the NBA Pro Summer League with various teams and his time in the league promoted by the NBA G-League with Windy City Bulls and Capital City Go-Go, among others, as well as his fleeting passage with Cedevita for the Croatian league, of whose national team he has been a part.
