Cedevita Olimpija added another point guard to the roster, and this one has a Slovenian passport. Until the end of the 2019/20 competitive season, the club’s jersey will be worn by the Slovenian game creator, Domen Bratož, who wore the jersey of Krka Novo mesto for the past two seasons. Bratož finished the 2018/19 season prematurely due to a knee injury that he had suffered in the fifth round of the Nova KBM League for the champion.
Novo mesto-born Bratož started his professional sports career in the Krka jersey and spent the 2012/13 season as a player on loan in Slovan. He also defended the colors of the team from Kodeljevo next season, followed by a move to Tafun, where he spent two seasons.
In 2016, he transferred to AVIS Raplo, which competes in the Estonian National Championships, and then returned to Novo mesto, and was one of the main reasons why Krka managed to make it back to the ABA League from ABA League 2.
In the 2018/19 season, Bratož has made 20 appearances in the ABA League, recording 7.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists.
As he agreed on cooperation with the Ljubljana side, Bratož told: “I am very happy to have joined Cedevita Olimpija. Together with other players, we will do our best to finish the season in the best possible way. We all know the goals we have, but the main wish is for all the national titles to return to Ljubljana. I invite all the fans to join us as much as possible in the National championship and cup competitions, and to come together for new successes and victories.”
