Boris Savovic 87 207cm PF Hemofarm Vrsac
Nenad Mijatovic (87 PG of Buducnost Podgorica) broke his leg on holiday in Budva and will not be able to play.
Nikola Dragovic (87 SF UCLA) will play for Serbia and also Petar Despotovic (88 SG Hemofarm Vrsac/ on loan in Mega Ishrane) will play for Serbia.
I dont know much abou those players, except Savovic and Dasic. Too bad we gave up on Savovic. He is a Serbian kid from Herzegovina, Trebinje. He had one huge game this year when many players frmo Hemofarm were injured, somethink like 24 points and 15 boards. But its fair. We recived Dragovic and Despotovic.And more important young talented players like Rondovic,Dasovic,Subotic etc. It would be nice if we could steal Pekovic. But its not likely to happen.
Now that Vujosevic is the new coach of Montenegro i think the chances are high that he will play for Montenegro. Pekovic´s father is working for RTCG (montenegrin national televison) so he must be pro Montenegro and Pekovic could end up playing for them.

That Despotovic would play for Serbia was from the 1st day clear for me. He is from Pljevlja a city were the most people ( i think around 70%) declare them as serbs. Dragovic called himself as montenegrin, but because of problems with Buducnost managment before few years he will not play for Montenegro. The most persons in the montenegrin fedaration are the one from Budcunost.
I think the team is strong enough to get to the A Division. It would be great with Mijatovic, Savovic and Dasic. As you said Savovic is a good one. As i know he was cut some days before the last U20 in Turkey togehter with Teodosic. Another Savovic will play for the U18 or better said is in the squad which inclued 45 players now. He is also playing in Hemofarm. Perhaps he is his brother.
Serbia definetly get some nice talent.
Besovic-92-? he played for Buducnost before so perhaps born in Podgorica
Andusic-91-? i didn´t know that he is from Montenegro, before few days. Good player i think. Nice scorer.
From players which are born in Montenegro, but play in serbian clubs now and will play for Motenegro
Tedorovic-91-? plays in Partizan
Celebic-91-? plays in Srem
Loncovic-91-? plays in Zvezda
Loncovic was one of the best players for the U16 of Zvezda with Rondovic and Radisavljevic.
But the big question will be if Nikola Mirotic and Nikola Rakocevic will play for Montenegro. If this happen then they have get some huge talent. Especially in Mirotic. Both play for Real Madrid and Mirtoic seems to be amazing. He is playing better against older competion as Djekic and Musli for example right now.
Djordje Pavicevic said on friday that it will be know in the next 4-5 days if some players from Italy, Spain, USA and Partizan will also be in the squad for the preparation of the U16. Since yesterday follwing players are training in Bar.
Rade Ivanovic, Aleksander Dobrovic, Mladen Novakovic, Nikola Lalic, Nemanja Djurisic and Luka Rakic from Buducnost Podgorica.. Milos Koljic, Zarko Krivokapic, Aleksander Nikolic and Bojan Dubljevic from Niksic. Nemanja Radovic from Centar Bijelo Polje. Nikola Ljujic of Jedinstov Bijelo Polje. Nikola Djuric from Bojs Bar. Mihailo Sekulovic from Dzoker Podgorica. Ognjen Scepanovic (Gorstak Kolasin), Aleksander Drincic (Primorije), Vladimir Bulatovic (Rozaje), Nino Celebic (Srem), Marko Loncovic (Zvezda), Nikola Lazovic (Italy), Marko Bugosija (Mladost Zemun), Bogdan Cebalovic (Mornar Bar), Miroslav Damjanovic (Rudar Pljevlja), Nikola Tomic (Bonus Niksic) and Nemanja Bulatovic (Gorstak Kolasin).
Rondovic is Also born in Montenegro. He is a very nice player. 6"10 and only 16 years old. I think Montenegro will qulify i Divison A this year. Serbia will always bring talented players from Bosnia and Montenegro. Its a quantity that's count. And FMP is the team that have very good scouting all over a Balkan. I dont know why Dusan Ognjenovic is not on the list of cadets. He is also from Hercegovina,Trebinje. 6"11, only 16 years old. He had solid numbers in tournament in Serbia backing Dejan Musli. It would be stupid to lost him to Bosnia or Montenegro(No Offense).
I have same fealling to about Montenegro. I still thin clubs from Serbia(FMP as example) will continue to bring talented kids from Montenegro. Especially kids who decleared as Serb's. They usally offer education together with basketball. They have their own academy. Also nobody can stop kids from either country to play for national team they want. I think Bodiroga's camp in Trebinje is a great thing. I thik it will continue to grow and grow.
