Sead Sehovic  will return to Oldenburg, this time in a Szolnoki Olaj vest

Szolnoki Olaj have added Montenegro international Sead Sehovic to their squad.

Last year's EuroChallenge Final Four hosts, Szolnoki have been struggling in the Adriatic League and decided a change was needed in the backcourt.

To make room for Sehovic, Szolnoki have released American Calvin Watson.

This will not be the first experience for Sehovic in the EuroChallenge as he played for EWE Baskets Oldenburg in the competition last season, averaging 4.4 points, 1.1 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 12 games.

To spice things up, Szolnoki's first opponent in the EuroChallenge on November 6  is Sehovic's former team Oldenburg.

The 23-year-old played big minutes for Montenegro this summer as they went unbeaten in the Qualification Round for EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia.

Sehovic's brother, Suad, is also a leading Montenegro international who will play in the EuroChallenge with Ukrainian outfit BC Khimik Yuzhne.

Defending Hungarian champions Szolnoki have won one of their first four Adriatic League games.

Sead Sehovic had initially agreed to play for Montegrenaro in Italy but the move fell apart and he spent the early part of this campaign with Mornar Bar in his native Montenegro.
