Mirza Begić se je vrnil v Petrol Olimpijo

Petrol Olimpija se je pred sklepnim delom sezone 2017/2018 v Ligi ABA okrepila z Mirzo Begićem, ki se tako vrača v Zmajevo gnezdo.

V Ljubljano se je vrnil 32-letni center Mirza Begić, ki je z ljubljanskim klubom sklenil pogodbo do konca sezone 2019/20.

216 cm visoki Begić je sezono 2017/2018 začel v Iranu, kjer je do novega leta nastopal za Petrochimi Bandar Imam Harbour. Predvsem zaradi domotožja in pripadnosti klubu za katerega je igral že v sezonah 2002/03, 2007/08, 2008/09 in kratek čas v 2014/15 se je odločil, da se vrne v Ljubljano, kjer tudi živi z družino. Begić je v pretekli sezoni nastopal za zagrebško Cedevito, prej pa je v svoji bogati karieri nastopal še za zveneče klube kot so Real Madrid, Olympiacos, Bilbao, Laboral Kutxa Vitoria in Žalgiris.
