Mornar are very, very active in the current transfer market! This morning, they announced the arrival of Damir Markota!

Markota brings a lot of experience into this brand new Mornar squad. This 33-year old forward, who started his pro career back in 2001 in Cibona, has played for numerous well-known European clubs during his career, while he also had a 1-year spell in the NBA where he played for the Milwaukee Bucks.

In the previous season Markota returned to Cibona and helped the team win the Croatian Championship for the first time since 2013. He averaged 10 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game in the 2018/19 ABA League regular season.  

Recall that before signing Markota, Mornar have extended contracts with Uroš Luković, Nemanja Vranješ, Vukota Pavić, Marko Mugoša & Radoje Vujošević, while they have also completed transfers of Sead Šehović, Milko Bjelica, Derek Needham and Brandis Raley-Ross.

Mornar potpisao ugovor sa Damirom Markotom

Dugogodišnji hrvatski reprezentativac sa NBA iskustvom Damir Markota peto je pojačanje Mornara ovog ljeta!

Tridesetčetvorogodišnji krilni centar svojim košarkaškim pedigreom dodatno je opravdao komentare navijača da predsjednik „Ponosa Bara“ Đorđije Pavićević ovog ljeta pravi barski „tim snova“.

Markota je minule sezone nosio dres Cibone u kojoj je prosječno bilježio 10 poena po meču u ABA ligi, imao 4,2 skoka i 2,2 asistencije.

Prije svoje poslednje sezone u Ciboni (u koju se nakon debitantske 2008/2009 sezone vraćao dva puta), Markota je igrao i za Cedevitu, Bilbao, Bešiktaš, moskovski Spartak, Istanbul, Olimpiju...

On je deseti igrač sa potpisanim ugovorom u Mornaru i deveti sa statusom reprezentativca (branio boje Hrvatske na tri evropska i jednom svjetskom prvenstvu).
