This is a partnership that began with the transfer of our jewel Andrija Jošović to Italy and which we are sure will continue with mutual satisfaction, in the interest of the talented kids. We are certain that together we will develop and grow the new Nikola Peković, who began playing and loving basketball in KK Junior, and then achieved very important goals in his career, like many other players who have passed through our club. The fact that we now have a partner in this mission who shares our values makes us really happy and proud".
The president of the Derthona Basketball Lab, Claudio Coffano: “With this important agreement we stabilize an already ongoing relationship which led to the transfer, with the collaboration of Vado, of Andrija Jošović, a very promising prospect who we admired in this second part of the championship played with the Ligurian team. The seriousness and ability of KK Junior fit perfectly with our vision of youth basketball and we are sure that both companies will have common benefits thanks to this agreement. I am sure that the mutual exchanges we will carry out will allow both companies to grow further. I want to thank Dejan for his availability and the ease with which we came to sign the agreement".
