The basketball team started the 2014/15 season preparations

The basketball team started to prepare for the 2014/15 season. The team is slightly incomplete (to say the least), right now there are only 10 players appearing at trainings, but we can surely count on them in the new championship. These players are Dragan Milosavljević, Milenko Tepić, Frenchman Boris Dallo, Petar Aranitović, Mihajlo Andrić, Nemanja Bezbradica, Đorđe Gagić, Nikola Milutinov, Đoko Šalić and newbie Andreja Milutinović, who is at the moment the only new player of Partizan.
- It's not easy for us and there's nothing new in it - said head coach Duško Vujošević. - Last year it was much easier to build the team, because only Vladimir Lučić left. Now we must start from scratch and with young players.
At the first training appeared (besides those mentioned above) Montenegrin U20 player Milija Miković, also Nikola Vujović, who used to play Partizan, just took a by-pass to Železničar, Ioannis Kouzeloglu from Greece as well as Partizan's youth team players Vanja Marinković and Miloš Glišić, who were both members of the silver medal winner U18 Serbian national basketball team. Even Luka Bogdanović was there, who has no team at the moment.
Those who are departed are Joffrey Lauvergne (BK Khimki), Bogdan Bogdanović (Fenerbahce), Léo Westermann (Barcelona, but immediately went on loan to Limoges), Davis Bertans (finally ended at Laboral Kutxa), Saša Pavlović's contract is terminated and there is no news about extending it, and as for Dejan Musli, news say negotiations with him have come to a halt.
So... hoorray. (Optimistic mode on.)
The team spends this month with preparations, then some time at the beginning of September they'll play pre-season matches - right now two are sure, on 4th September with Macedonian team KK Kozuv and two days later with Russian Yenisei.
In the middle of September the team travel to Sarajevo to take part at Mirza Delibašić Memorial Tournament together with hosting team Bosna, Cibona from Croatia and Turk Telekom from Turkey. From 19th to 21st September they'll be in France where they play at the tournament organized by French NBA-player Tony Parker.

Dejan Musli terminated his contract with KK Partizan "on mutual agreement".

Well... :(
