Kravic signs first professional contract with Greece (Krista Pirtle's Blog)

Former Texas Tech center Dejan Kravic has signed his first professional contract with OEM Rethymno Aegean of the Greek Esake League for the 2014-15 season.

The 7-footer averaged 7.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks during his senior season as a Red Raider.

"I've been looking forward to playing pro basketball for as long as I can remember," Kravic said in a press release. "I have been working extremely hard this summer to improve my game and am looking forward to getting to Rethymno and doing everything I can to help the club succeed this season.”

Rethymno Aegean finished last season in ninth place, just outside the playoffs and will look for Kravic to add some much needed size and athleticism down low.

Stavros Mykoniatis, chief scout and assistant coach for Rethymno Aegean, believes Kravic will significantly enhance this year’s roster.

“He is very athletic, runs the floor well and I believe he will be a very important player on our team this season,” Mykoniatis said.

Kravic was named to the Serbian national Team’s 29 man Preliminary Roster for the Federation Internationale De Basketball World Cup. He is currently competing for a spot for the National Team alongside the world’s top Serbian players.
