21-year old player of Pula Toni Perković, arrived to Split as a free agent. Until this season he used to play for Cedevita, where he arrived in 2015 from Stoja as one of the most talented youngsters in Croatia. The arrival of Perković, who has experienced playing in the Croatia senior National Team, is another confirmation of the fact, that a quality team is being composed in Gripe and that it will be composed by the most talented Croatia National Team members in youth categories.

Besides Perković, Bajo, Vrgoč, Rebić, Runjić, Perasović and Gizdavčić are now a part of the Ante Grgurević’s roster and Kalajžić and Marčinković are to be added to this group, as they are the senior national team members in Croatia. Perković has, together with Kalajžić and Vrgoč, played for the U20 Croatia National Team, which won the silver at the U20 European Championship.

“I am happy to be coming to the club of great tradition, such as Split and I am convinced that this will be yet another huge step forward in my career. I am aware what kind of challenges are waiting for me and my team and I will do my best in order to warrant the trust, that the club and head coach Ante Grgurević have put in me. I am especially eager to play in true basketball atmosphere, that I have witnessed before in Gripe,” Perković told after signing the contract.

Split potpisao s Perkovićem

Toni Perković potpisao je ugovor sa Splitom i naredne tri sezone nosit će dres "Žutih".

Perković, 21-godišnji Puljanin, stigao je kao slobodan igrač, do ove sezone nosio je dres Cedevite u koju je iz Stoje prešao 2015. godine kao jedan od najboljih mladih igrača Hrvatske. Dolazak Perkovića, koji je osjetio igranje u A reprezentaciji, još jedna je potvrda da se na Gripama slaže kvalitetna momčad sačinjena od ponajboljih hrvatskih mladih reprezentativaca.

U kadru Ante Grgurevića sada su, uz Perkovića, još Bajo, Vrgoč, Rebić, Runjić, Perasović i Gizdavčić, a njima valja pridodati Kalajžića i Marčinkovića, hrvatske A reprezentativce. Perković je, zajedno s Kalajžićem i Vrgočem igrao za U20 reprezentaciju Hrvatske, koja je prošle godine bila srebrna na prvenstvu Europe.

„Presretan sam što dolazim u klub velike tradicije kakav je Split, uvjeren sam da će ovo biti još jedan iskorak u mojoj karijeri. Svjestan sam kakvi izazovi čekaju momčad i mene, dat ću sve od sebe da opravdam povjerenje koje su mi ukazali klub i trener Ante Grgurević. Posebno se radujem igranju u pravoj košarkaškoj atmosferi kakvu sam osjetio na Gripama,“ nakon potpisa ugovora rekao je Perković.
