TO great evils, great remedies. This is what they have thought in Unicaja after the injury of Micheal Eric and the frustrated signing of Devin Williams. The Los Guindos team has pulled plan B to sign Dejan Kravic in record time. The pivot, who arrives from San Pablo Burgos, will sign until the end of the course once he passes the feared medical examination of the typesetter club. Kravic has traveled to Malaga today to immediately join training this afternoon with Unicaja.
The player will not be able to play this weekend’s match, between Unicaja and Surne Bilbao Basket, since it belongs to matchday 15, in which Kravic already played with Hereda San Pablo Burgos and the acb regulations do not allow a player to play the same day with two teams.
Born in Mostar, Bosnia, Kravic grew up and was raised in Canada from a very young age. He has a university education, first at the University of York (Canada) and then at Texas Tech University in the USA. International with Serbia, he has a long history in European basketball, having played in Greece, Holland, Belgium, Italy and three years Spain.
In addition, Kravic was key in the achievement of the 2 Basketball Champions League titles by Hereda San Pablo Burgos, the last two seasons. 9.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and a PIR of 13 were the numbers with the Castilian team until the start of this season. Interestingly, Kravic has won the last 3 Basketball Champions League titles, the last two with Hereda San Pablo Burgos and in the 2019 season wearing the Virtus Segafredo Bologna jersey.
This season his numbers in the Endesa League are 8.6 points and almost 6 rebounds for an average PIR of 10.4, while in the Basketball Champions League his averages have been 7.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 11.3 PIR.
