A proud graduate of Red Star Belgrade. His father played for the club and Igor followed in his footsteps. As a junior had a stint with arch-rival Partizan, but before long returned home and got his chance in the YUBA league. At the time his leaping abilities earned him the nickname “Grasshopper”. Playing for Red Star and Buducnost Podgorica, he established himself as one of Europe’s most talented players, but only after a season in the NBA did he get to the top. He didn’t play much for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but worked hard and improved his game considerably. Igor returned to Europe and we saw a totally different player who was among the statistical leaders in the past two seasons. He matured as a leader, learned how to pass and play a team game. He’s a playmaker who is a deadeye shooter and a big scorer, very aggressive on defense, unstoppable in one-on-one situations.
