Nikola Rebic (25 years old, 1.88 m) as a medical joker. Deprived for at least six months of his American leader of Trinidadian origin Khadeen Carrington, seriously injured in the right knee ten days ago during the card of Monaco against Chalon-sur-Saône (90-60) and operated in the wake of a rupture of the cruciate ligaments, the Principality club had started looking for a new position 1 to make up for the long absence of its holder, who arrived at the start of the season. ASM has set its sights on Serbian leader Nikola Rebic, crowned European champion with the U20 selection of his country in 2015 and twice winner of the Serbian Championship with the Red Star of Belgrade, his training club. Then left for Mega Leks (Serbia) then passed through Bilbao (Spain), Mornar Bar (Montenegro) and Enisey, the replacement of Carrington, whom he had as a teammate in Montenegro, made the heyday of the Russian club last season . Rebic, known to be an excellent shooter but also a very good and very effective defender, especially in pressing, turned over 40% of skill on three-point shots, the European Championship and Cup (VTB League) combined.

Rebic: “First a thought for Khadeen …”

What to rejoice his new trainer Zvezdan Mitrovic. “Nikola is an intelligent player, young but already with experience since he played at the Red Star, Spain, Russia, Montenegro … With the injury of Khadeen Carrington we really needed a free player in this position, with a European passport. Nikola Rebic is a quick, far-sighted point guard with a 3-point shoot. He grew up in a good school at the Red Star. We hope that it will integrate quickly in view of the next deadlines. “

A pleasure shared by the new Serbian leader of Monaco, accustomed to Euroleague games and who does not sulk his joy on the site of his new colors. “I am very happy to join AS Monaco, an ambitious and recognized club, which has played the leading roles in the league and in the European Cups for several seasons (…) I was very well received and I hope to give my best quickly. Monaco is an armed team in all positions with great potential ”. But, above all, Rebic says he is very sorry for the man whose misfortune offers him the opportunity to make his debut in Jeep Elite. “I want to have a thought for Khadeen (Carrington) first. We were teammates in Mornar (Montenegro). He is a very good player and a great guy, very appreciated in the group. It’s up to the Serbian to get in tune now.
