Bojan Dubljevic might not be the greatest athlete underneath European hoops, but his smart post moves as well as his soft shooting touch and clever shot selection turn him into one of the most effective big men on the old continent. Having enjoyed a fundamentally sound basketball school in his native town Niksic, Dubljevic soon established himself as the linchpin of the Montenegrin youth national teams, his final stint at youth level being the U20 European Championship in 2011. A dominant performance (22.4 points plus 9.7 rebounds-a-night) earned him a spot on the All Tournament Team, raising his stock on the market. Valencia Basket picked up the services of the pivot in 2012, with the relationship already proving to be a prolific one, as Dubljevic was named Eurocup Rising Star in his first season with the Spanish club.
