Roma signs center Primoz Brezec
July 20, 2008
Virtus Roma pulled off another big signing on Sunday with the announcement that center Primoz Brezec will join the club. Brezec (216, 29) arrives from Toronto of the NBA. He returns to Europe after seven seasons in the NBA, spent with Indiana, Charlotte and Detroit before joining Toronto. He played in the Euroleague with Union Olimpija before heading to the United States. Brezec's best season overseas came in 2004-05, when he averaged 13 points and 7.4 rebounds in 72 games for Charlotte. His career averages in the NBA are 7.6 points and 4.1 rebounds in 321 regular season games.
"I am very happy and proud to play next year in Rome," Brezec said in a news release. "It's beautiful to return to Europe after seven years in the NBA with one of the best teams on the continent, with the great, successful coach Repesa and the most beautiful city in the world. The determining factor for my choice was the link with Dejan Bodiroga. With him I talked so much in these days. He explained what the objectives of the team are and I am really happy to join a project so important and ambitious like that of Rome. I hope to achieve important results. And it is great to be playing with Sani Becirovic, who is one of my best friends off the court. I'm ready for the big challenge."
