Cibona have completed another transfer! The Wolves announced that they have signed a 1-year deal with 27-year old point guard Toni Katić.

Katić spent the previous four years playing for Cedevita, while he averaged 5.2 points, 1.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game in the previous ABA League season.

Ivan Velić, head coach of Cibona:

“Toni is a young player who already has plenty of experience. I am convinced that if he hasn’t had so many injury problems that he would now be one of the best point guards in the country. Still, I believe that he will bring stability into our team and that he will make us feel more safe down on the court.”

Toni Katić, player of Cibona:

“I am happy to sign with Cibona and I am very pleased that I will once again be working with Ivan Velić, who was my head coach in Široki. I know the players very well which is why I think that I won’t need much time to fit in. I can hardly wait to start working with the team.”

Cibona potpisala jednogodišnji ugovor sa Tonijem Katićem

Košarkaški klub Cibona potpisala je jednogodišnji ugovor s 27- godišnjim razigravačem Tonijem Katićem.

Toni je posljednje četiri sezone proveo u Cedeviti. Tako je prošle sezone u HT Premijer ligi odigrao 12 utakmica i bilježio prosjek od 7.8 poena, 2.2 skoka i 4 asistencije po utakmici. U ABA ligi je u 20 utakmica postizao u prosjeku 5.2 poena, 1.1 skok i 2.8 asista.

Ivan Velić, trener Cibone:

“Toni je igrač koji daje sigurnost i stabilnost. Mlad je, a opet iskusan. Da ga nisu pratile ozljede kroz karijeru zasigurno bi bio jedan od najboljih playmakera u Hrvatskoj. Očekujem da će nam donijeti sigurnost u igri.”

Toni Katić, igrač Cibone:

“Sretan sam što dolazim i iznimno mi je drago da ću opet surađivati s trenerom Velićem obzirom da smo jako dobro surađivali dok sam bio u Širokom. Znam cijelu ekipu i baš zbog toga mislim da ću se uklopiti vrlo brzo. Jedva čekam da dođem i da krenemo raditi.”
