Red Star will be booking Roberts and Dragicevic
Red Star Belgrade is very interested in ex-NBAer Lawrence Roberts(2.06-PF/C) who was booked by Olympiacos last season but he was released shortly thereafter as he was deemed unfit to play. Roberts was the number 55 pick of the Seattle Supersonics in the 2nd round of the 2005 Draft but was traded to Memphis. He played a total of 87 games in the NBA in 2 seasons where he averaged 3.8 points and 5.7 rebounds. Roberts is coming to Red Star after a year's absence from playing any professional basketball.
The other player that interests Red Star is the twin brother of Red Star's captain Tadija Dragicevic, Strahinja Dragicevic. He is currently practicing with Red Star and he's got good chances of securing a contract with them. He played last seaon with BC Mega in Serbia.
