Nihad Djedovic - FC Bayern Munich

German champion FC Bayern Munich made the first move in putting together a roster for their second consecutive Turkish Airlines Euroleague season, signing a new two-year contract with all-round forward Nihad Djedovic on Thursday. In Bayern’s last, historic season, Djedovic (1.96 meters, 24 years old) averaged career-best 11.7 points and 3.6 rebounds, as well as 2.3 assists in 18 Euroleague games, while posting team-high 12.7 points, along with 2.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.5 steals in German League. Djedovic missed the playoffs due to a hand fracture, but now sets his sights on another two years with the club. "After a great season, the contract extension was for me beyond question”, said Djedovic. “For me there were never a discussion about it, at which club I want to continue my career. For me there was only a plan to stay at Bayern basketball. I want to maintain continuity and continue to work with this great champion team. I am very, very happy."

Djedovic made his Euroleague debut in 2007 with FC Barcelona, and has three full seasons and exactly 60 games in the competition under his belt with Virtus Roma, ALBA Berlin and Bayern. His current averages for Euroleague career are 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals. During his career he also played for Cornella and Obradoiro in Spain, Galatasaray in Turkey, and Bosna Sarajevo in his native Bosna and Herzegovina. He is also a regular member of the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina, having played at EuroBasket in 2011 and 2013.
