Valencia Basket added another talent to its backcourt by signing Vanja Marinkovic from Partizan NIS Belgrade. Marinkovic (1.98 meters, 22 years old) signed a two-year deal and will make his Turkish Airlines EuroLeague debut with Valencia. He has played his entire career to date with Partizan. Marinkovic was Partizan's top scorer last season in the 7DAYS EuroCup with 12.4 points and 2.3 assists over 16 games. A prolific three-point shooter, his 1.94 threes per game (31 overall) were ninth-most in the EuroCup.
Marinkovic was just 17 years of age when he first played for Partizan's senior team. He has won a pair of Serbian Cups with the club. Marinkovic has also played for the Serbian national team at the youth categories and won medals at the European U16 and U18 championships and the world U17 championships.
