“We are thanking Aguilar and Magette, with which we have terminated our contracts on the effort and everything they have done for Cedevita and we wish them lots of success in the remainder of their careers,” Sports Director Veljko Mršić commented on the changes and added: “We are bringing two domestic players on their positions – Jakov Mustapić and Marko Banić. We are happy that they would become our members and we hope for them to fit into our team swiftly.”

Zagreb-born Jakov Mustapić started his career in Cedevita youth categories. In the 2011/12 season he started playing for the senior squad both in the ABA League and domestic championship and afterwards played for Zabok and Kvarner 2010. In the 2013/14 season he moved back to Cedevita and afterwards used to play also for Split, Jolly, Vrijednosnice Osijek and Miasto Szkla Krosno.

Zadar-born Marko Banić had an excellent international career in Europe. He started in Zadar and later moved to Bilbao, where he spent seven seasons. He later played for Unics, Estudiantes, ALBA Berlin, Unics again and at last for Pinar Karsiyaka.
While Banić used to be Croatia Senior National Team member, Mustapić has been wearing his country’s jersey lately.

S Cedevitom raskinuli Magette i Aguilar, stižu Banić i Mustapić

Cedevita je, nakon promjena u stručnom stožeru kada je trenera Sita Alonsa odmijenio Slaven Rimac, obavila i prve promjene u igračkom rosteru. Raskinuti su ugovori s Joshom Magetteom i Pablom Aguilarom, a na njihova mjesta dovedeni su Marko Banić te Jakov Mustapić.

"Aguilaru i Magetteu, s kojima smo raskinuli ugovore, zahvaljujemo na dosadašnjem trudu i angažmanu u Cedeviti, te im želimo puno uspjeha u nastavku karijere.", aktualne promjene je komentirao Veljko Mršić, sportski direktor kluba. "Na njihove pozicije dovodimo dva domaća igrača, Jakova Mustapića i Marka Banića. Sretni smo da dvojac postaje dio naše momčadi, vjerujem da ćemo zajedno napraviti daljnji iskorak i da će se brzo uklopiti."

Zagrepčanin Jakov Mustapić je u mlađim kategorijama igrao u Cedeviti. U sezoni 2011/12 upisao je nastupe za seniore Cedevite u ABA ligi i nacionalnom prvenstvu, a potom je igrao za Zabok i Kvarner 2010. U sezoni 2013/14 opet je igrao za Cedevitu, nakon čega je nastupao za Split, Jolly, Vrijednosnice Osijek i Miasto Szkla Krosno.

Zadranin Marko Banić je igrač koji je u europskoj košarci napravio odličnu karijeru. Sve je započeo u Zadru, kasnije je prešao u španjolski Bilbao gdje je proveo sedam sezona. Zatim je igrao za ruski Uniks Kazanj, španjolski Estudiantes, berlinsku Albu, opet Uniks Kazan, a prošlu sezonu proveo je u Turskoj u dresu Pinar Karsiyake.

Marko Banić je nekadašnji hrvatski seniorski reprezentativac, a Mustapić aktualni.
