Aleksa Avramovic had the tournament of his life during the 2023 FIBA World Cup in September, so much so that even NBA teams were interested in finding out who this mysterious guy was.
Avramovic played a key role in Serbia’s run to the finals, matching up against key players from opponents. The 29-year-old from Cacak drew attention when he limited Canadian Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, an All-NBA guard, in the semifinals and wowed the crowd with his emotions.
“Aleksa Avramovic is Cacak’s best player because he did a lot last year, he achieved quality, I even got a lot of questions about Aleksa from the NBA.” said his agent, Misko Raznatovic, who also represents Nikola Jokic, in an interview with Kablarnet.
“The bottom line is that he is a nice and kind guy with whom I have very good communication. It is difficult to go to Italy from KLS (Serbian League). With him I succeeded and I felt very good after Aleksa’s move to Varese. We didn’t really dream about it, but for him it became a reality to win silver at the World Championships and put the best guard in the NBA league in his pocket.”, Raznatovic said. “I also saw the reception after the World Cup in Cacak. No one had such a reception, I was even envious of him. Aleksa deserved it.”
