One of the most talented players of his age group, Dedovic is only 23, but it seems like he has been with the national team forever. A do-it-all swingman, the pearl of Bosnian basketball made his debut when only 17, and he is the only player who has not missed action in a jersey of Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2007. Dedovic might not hit from the outside with consistency, but he developed physically and has great size for his position to contribute even when his shots are not falling in. He uses his confident approach to slash his way to the basket; he likes to create for others; but also force takeaways on the defensive perimeter. Coach Petrovic has outmost trust in him, even using him for the entire 40 minutes on the floor, as Dedovic led the team in minutes during the Qualification Round.
