Košarkarji Krke so minulo sredo končali s treningi, v klubu pa že pogledujejo proti začetku priprav in novi tekmovalni sezoni. Barve njihovega kluba bosta branila tudi Jan Kosi in Jan Rebec.

Jan Kosi (204 cm, 1996) je svojo športno pot začel v šoštanjski Elektri, kjer je igral med letoma 2013 in 2016. Zadnja štiri leta je preživel v Kopru, kjer je bil član Kopra Primorske. Jan Kosi je tudi občasni slovenski reprezentant. Lani je v Ligi ABA povprečno beležil 2 točki in skok na srečanje.

Jan Rebec (192 cm, 1993) je s košarko prišel v domači Pivki, potem pa igral za ŠD Koš Koper. Iz Pivke v Koper se je selil star 13 let, ostal pa je pet sezon. V Pivki je nadaljeval v 3. ligi, potem pa igral za Ajdovščino, LTH Castings Škofjo Loko, Šenčur GGD, Petrol Olimpijo in Šentjur. Za ekipo Šentjurja je v lanski sezoni v slovenski ligi vknjižil po 11.6 točke, 3.5 skoka in 2.7 podaje.

Jan Kosi je ob dogovoru o sodelovanju s Krko povedal: „Zelo sem vesel, ker sem prišel v klub, v konkretno sredino, ki premore bogato in uspešno zgodovino. S sabo prinašam željo, borbo, dobro obrambo in željo po zmagi! Upam in želim si podpore s tribune, z moje strani pa, da se bomo maksimalno potrudili.“

Jan Rebec pa: „Zelo sem vesel, ker sem dobil priložnost, da pokažem v Krki, kaj znam. S svojim načinom igre prinašam agresivnost v obrambi, to bo moja prva naloga, to od mene pričakuje trener. Lahko obljubim, da bomo na vsaki tekmi dali vse od sebe in skušali zbrati čim več zmag.“
