    The interesting part is that Radosavljevic left Serbia for Germany 7 months ago, and that he still don’t have german citizenship. It’s seems that serbian centers are highly rated by other national hoop programs. Dusan Gavrilovic (222 1990) will play for turkish U20 NT, Dejan Radojevic (213 1989) will play for slovenian U20 NT and Stefan Nastic (211 1992) may play for Canada U17 NT. Our federation should auction all our centers, it could be a great solution against world economic crisis.

    Serbian Basketball Federation won’t allow players selected in University National Team and in U20 NT to take part to Reebok Eurocamp. Macvan, Marjanovic, Bjelica, Raduljica, Paunic, Keselj are concerned by this decision. Although he wasn’t selected in U20 preliminary list, Milutinovic may also be affected by this move. There are some rumours that he may be added to the U20 NT with Covic, Lazic, Stojacic, Maravic. Only three serbian players may take part to the event (Tepic, Aleksandrov and Labovic).

    does Radosavljevic parent’s have any link with Germany? Did his father not live there for several years?

    As far as I know his father works in Germany for three years now. It’s a great link between him and Germany. How many foreigners in Germany can pretend obtain german citizenship after less than 6 months in the country ? Maybe I’m old school, but german coaches should better try to form players rather than to “buy” them. Unfortunately, money rules the the world.

    His father lives in Germany for 10 years. That is the link and Bogdan is here since 2008. Just to answer your questions about this KID.
