Pavia closes for the 21-year-old guard wing, in Italy since 2015, coming from Salerno Di Bella: «He has physique, shooting technique and speed». Play, Tomassini’s dream fades


A new player now and another (maybe) today. Riso Scotti is moving on the market to hire the pawns necessary to reinforce the group available to coach Fabio Di Bella. The first player to arrive yesterday at the PalaRavizza is the young promise Vladimir Rajacic, a 200 cm long and 92 kg guard-winger, of Serbian nationality, immediately available to the coach from Pavia. Born on November 5, 2000, from Belgrade, Rajacic is young but already knows well Italian basketball: discovered by Casalpusterlengo, he arrived in Biella in 2015 where he completed the entire youth team, playing a total of 122 games with an average of 11 points and a high of 36. In 2019 he signed with Scandone Avellino for his debut in the cadet series: his figures say 22 attendance fees, with 25 ‘on the parquet, 8 points (46% from two, 30% from three) and 4 rebounds on average. The good impression aroused on his debut in a senior tournament earned him the return to his homeland, for a season, at KK Borac Zemun, a club that plays in the Serbian second division.

But Italy had remained in the dreams of the 21-year-old winger and, this summer, Rajacic seized the opportunity to return to the beautiful country of the baskets, signing with Virtus Arechi Salerno, engaged in group D of the Serie B tournament. Among the ranks of the Salento team, Vladimir played 11 games, staying on the court for over 20 ‘on average and producing 7.6 points with 49% from two, 27% from three and 80% in the line. Rajacic is a player of energy and good perimeter shooting who can occupy the spots of two and three.

The first workout

Coach Di Bella frames him like this: «Rajacic has a beautiful body, shooting technique and quick footwork. He runs well in transition and opens the field. In defense he can cover four roles. I hope he can integrate into the group in the best possible way and that he will want to continue improving ». «I immediately accepted the proposal of Pavia, a historic and ambitious team with a well-known coach – explains the Serbian – my idol is Teodosic, we play in different roles, but he is a phenomenon. Serbia is a great basketball school and I hope to be able to give my contribution to the Pavia cause ». Yesterday afternoon personalized training for the Serbian player and for Gianmarco Conte, recovered from Covid. Rajacic made a good impression, athletic physique, polite hands and good technique. From today he will start training with his teammates to be ready for Sunday in the home match against Omegna. The arrival of Rajacic is also a bill for the future, given his young age and physique, as well as the guarantee of the Serbian school.

The signing of the play guard should also arrive by the hour to complete the roster after Simoncelli’s exit. Riso Scotti had two slots available on the market by the end of the first round. One was used for Rajacic, the other remains available for a senior. Meanwhile the dream is fading Claudio Tomassini who yesterday signed for Fabriano in Serie A2. –
