Crvena Zvezda brings back three-time EuroLeague champ Antic

A three-time Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion is changing uniforms with the announcement Monday that big man Pero Antic is leaving Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul to rejoin Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade, his former team from 10 years ago. Antic (2.10 meters, 35 years old), who won the EuroLeague crown last May with Fenerbahce and helped Olympiacos Piraeus to two continental titles in 2011 and 2012, now returns to the Serbian capital where he is already a fan favorite after playing with Zvezda for two seasons, in 2006 and 2007. Antic is a veteran of eight EuroLeague seasons, having made his debut with AEK Athens back in 2001. In a total of 144 games in the competition, Antic has posted 5.5 points and 3.2 rebounds during his career. Last season he posted 4.2 points and 2.4 rebounds, but despite limited minutes made some clutch plays in the championship game. A leader on and off the court, Antic started his career with Rabotnicki in his native FYR of Macedonia. After three seasons with AEK and two with Zvezda, he went on to play with Academic Sofia of Bulgaria, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and Spartak St. Petersburg in Russia. After two years and two EuroLeague titles with Olympiacos, Antic played in the NBA with Atlanta, before returning to the EuroLeague and joining Fenerbahce in the summer of 2015.
