Kosta Perovic heading to Valencia
Kosta Perovic(2.18-C) is a name in the long list of european players that just couldn't cut it in the NBA. Nevertheless he might be the answer to the prayers of Valencia that were looking for one more player to cover their front line.
The 23-year old serbian center left Partizan with high hopes and was signed by the Golden State Warriors last season after he was drafted at number 38 in the 2nd round of the 2006 Draft. Perovic unfortunately was another decorative 7-footer in an NBA roster but in Europe he can make a difference.
The roster of Pamesa Valencia was almost complete until Tomas Van Der Spiegel decided not to sign with them and go for a higher paying contract. According to spanish newspaper terra.es Kosta Perovic seems to be the main target of coach Katsikaris who sees in him the last piece of the puzzle.
Perovic only managed to play 7 games last season and averaged 1.4 points and 1.9 rebounds.
