At the beginning of the training camp, Jan joined Rogaška squad and moved to China tour with them. He satisfied the expectations of the coaching staff in China and immediately after returning home he signed a 2-year deal.

After signing another newcomer, Dejan Čigoja, Rogaška have completed their squad for the 2019/20 season.

Rogaško okrepila Dornik in Čigoja

Košarkarski klub Rogaška se je okrepil z Janom Dornikom ter Dejanom Čigojo.

Košarkarski klub Rogaška se je okrepil z 21-letnim 199 cm visokim Janom Dornikom, ki se najbolje znajde na poziciji krila. Dornik, v preteklosti član mlajših selekcij slovenske reprezentance, je v članski konkurenci že igral za Union Olimpijo II in škofjeloški LTH Castings. Na začetku minule sezone se je odpravil na študij v ZDA. V NCAA je za Loyolo odigral šest tekem, januarja pa se je vrnil v Slovenijo. V drugi polovici lanske sezone je v 2. SKL, znova za LTH Castings, v povprečju dosegal 8,5 točke in 4,5 skoka na tekmo.

Na začetku priprav se je Jan pridružil ekipi Rogaške in z njo odpotoval tudi na pripravljalno turnejo na Kitajsko. Tam je prepričal strokovni štab, takoj po prihodu domov pa je s Košarkarskim klubom Rogaška podpisal dveletno pogodbo.

Po podpisu še enega novinca, Dejana Čigoje, pa je Rogaška zaključila s kadrovanjem pred sezono 2019/20.

30 letni 205 cm visoki Čigoja je stari znanec slovenskih košarkarskih parketov. V Sloveniji je igral že za Geoplin Slovan, Zlatorog, Portorož, Ilirijo in Tajfun, preizkušal pa se je tudi v tujini (BSC Raiffeisen Furstenfeld Panthers, WBC Raiffeisen Wels, Cafes Candelas Breogan Lugo).
