A new piece for Martin Schiller. Serbian striker Borisa Simanic joins Casademont Zaragoza for next season and thus adds to a position of ‘4’ already held by the Montenegrin Dino Radoncic.
Simanic, 24 years old, KK Mega Basket process of his country, with which he played the Adriatic League (ABA) averaged 12.8 points and 4.3 rebounds in 25.1 minutes played per game. His best performance was 30 points against Split with an 84.6% shooting percentage (4/5 shooting 2 and 7/8 shooting 3). He trained in the lower categories of the Red Star and was international with Serbia in the U16, U18, U20 and absolute categories from the 2013-14 season to today.
The sporting director of the Aragonese club, Toni Muedra, thus defined the new signing of Casademont. “As a player we are talking about what is currently called an open 4, with the possibility of opening the field and shooting 3 points with ease”, explained Muedra, who also wanted to assess his qualities: “We like its athleticism, size and wingspanso it will help us both in attack, where he scores both with his shooting range and attacking with the rebound in one on one, as well as in defense, giving us size and ability to bounce back and intimidate, emphasizing his intuition to block“.
Muedra considers that Borisa Simanic could be Radoncic’s ideal partner in the rotation of the forward position. “He’s a player we think will complement Dino well, thaving both different game profiles that will give us in this position 4 different registers, with one player and the other. ANDWe hope he adapts well to both the team and the competition and helps us compete at a good level.” analyzed the sporting director.
The hiring of Borisa Simanic is Casademont Zaragoza’s fourth move to the summer market, following the arrival of coach Martin Schiller, the renewal of Mekowulu and the signing of the Latvian Lomazs. With the arrival of the Serbian interior, there are 7 players who have a contract with the Aragonese team: Javi García, Santi Yusta, Stan Okoye, Dino Radoncic, Triggvy Hlinason, Christian Mekowulu and Simanic himself.
The team planning continues to follow the guidelines set by Toni Muedra, who has previously stated that his intention is to put together a team”physical, seasoned, beating and committed”. Casademont is aware of the weaknesses and problems the Aragonese team presented last season. All this triggered the loss of its identity and its essence and, what is worse, in a disconnection with the stands of Prince Philip.
Restructuring has the added difficulty ofimitation of the budget, having obtained no place in any European competition. However, the club’s wish for this year is to recover the lost site these last two lessons.
