Just as Round 7 of the 2021/22 AdmiralBet ABA League regular season has finished, Crvena zvezda mts announced big transfer news as the reigning champions have signed a contract with experienced point guard Stefan Marković until the end of the 2022/23 season.

Marković has quite a reputation as he has played for many top-class teams during his career, while AdmiralBet ABA League fans certainly remember him from the period between 2006 and 2010 when he played for Hemofarm Vršac.

After leaving Hemofarm in 2010, Marković has played for Benetton Treviso, Valencia Basket, Banvit, Unicaja Malaga, Zenit St. Petersburg, Khimki, while in the past two years he was a member of Italian giant Virtus Segafredo Bologna with whom he won the Italian Championship last season.

This 33-year-old point guard was a regular member of the Serbian national team with whom he won three silver medals at the major tournaments (2009 FIBA EuroBasket, 2014 FIBA World Cup and 2016 Rio Olympics). After the end of the 2016 Rio Olympics, Marković announced retirement from the national team.

Stefan Marković will join his new teammates from Crvena zvezda mts as soon as he passes all required medical tests.
