Highly valued on Ilan Bernier’s excellent track, Gregor will discover the ruse of his third French club: the Slovenian international said yes to JDA Dijon.
For two seasons, he was one of the most underrated players in Betclic ÉLITE, far from a really petty in a very good (athletic) year for Alain Piranes (12.6 points, 47%, 4, 5 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 36 games) . Uncovered in Cholet Basket, porous in Pau-Lacq-Orthez, Gregor Hrovat (1.96m, 27 years old) will continue his tricolor path at the start of the school year by strengthening the classes of JDA Bourgogne Dijon.
A very nice move for the Burgundian club which secures the services of one of the most intelligent players in the tournament, a reliable link in an outside line, capable of installing the ball, creativity, driving and shooting. A very nice way to console yourself with the loss of Carrington’s cheeks since the arrival of the Slovenian rear may bury the last hopes of extending the former Monaco.
While Dijon has set a date with Sassari, PAOK Thessaloniki and possibly Malaga in the Champions League, the Coupe de France winner will also be able to provide some welcoming experience from European competitions. If EBPLO has played only Betclic ÉLITE this season, the Helios Suns kid already has six continental campaigns to his credit: four with Olimpija Ljubljana, one with Bayreuth and the last with Cholet.
” We were looking for a quarterback with experience in Betclic Elite and BCL,” explains Fabien Romiere, JDA’s sporting director. He is no stranger to Pau’s very good season. He just won the French Cup and played the semi-finals of the qualifiers while doing well. Gregor also gives us human guarantees, he is a player who loves to engage in team projects. He will bring us his creativity, his rhythmic qualities but also a real threat in outside shooting. His experience and versatility will be invaluable to us this season. He may have to arrive late because he will be able to compete in the next European Championship. »
In fact, part of the backbone of the Slovenian selection, Grigor Hrovat is one of the most successful teams in the world in the wake of his co-star Luka Doncic. He was not yet an international during the 2017 coronation, and has no other goal than to be this summer’s European Champion.
“We are still European champions,” he told us last February. “We really want to stay that way, that’s our goal. If everyone is there and in good health, and we play our style of play, we can score big goals. In addition, we will have a chance to take revenge on the France team because we are in the same group!”
