I used to play in 4 different countries (Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia and Sweden). I changed 5 teams so far and this is my 8th season as a pro. In almost all seasons I achieved some award.
The nicest achievements what I received are the ones from Sweden: MVP award, Defensive player of the year, Bosman player of the year ect. I’m the proudest of winning the league and being All-time best assistant player in Sweden.
My game is based on finding and putting the others in the best position to score and feel better on the court. I've had great luck to have great teammates and coaches around me who were always supporting me even when I was making mistakes. I will always appreciate that!
Previous club and first club. What are your expectations for this season?
My previous club was Köping Stars where we had two great seasons and the first club was Napredak from my hometown Krusevac where everything started.
My expectation is a hard work as always from the all team (players, coaches, stuff ect.) by doing that I’m 100% sure that we will have a successful season and the fans will enjoy in every game!
Personal goal is the same as always, to lead the team and help others to be better players and persons. I’m expecting professional behavior and willingness to learn new things from all the guys in my team.
By helping and making each other better I’m sure that we will have a great cooperation and chemistry.
Why did you choose to come to Fryshuset?
I came to Sweden when I was 20. I improved my game a lot here by having a freedom in the teams where I played and my goal is to do the same until the end of my career!
In this moment that was the most reasonable solution for me. I refused the offers from all other countries because I feel there are a lot of good things to happen for me here.
I have a lot of friends in Sweden and besides basketball I’ll have more entertaining things to see and learn in Stockholm.
Fryshuset is a big organization, it’s based in the capital city and I know that they have a big goals and bright future in front of them. I’m here to help them with that with my basketball knowledge, creativity and experience.

This is a great signing for Fryshuset basket. I am very proud of all of us that we made this happen. Aleksa is point guard who controls the game with his energy and skills set. The biggest reason I decided to signed Aleksa is his work ethic and attitude. We have good talents and I am sure that Aleksa will help them become professionals.
