Nikola Đurišić has been selected in the 2024 NBA draft!

Đurišić was chosen as the 43rd pick by the Atlanta Hawks, further solidifying Mega MIS’s absolute record as the global leader in the number of players drafted outside of US clubs, now totaling 16.

Nikola has been an integral part of the Mega family for quite some time, joining the club back in 2017. Since then, he has progressed through all the club’s teams, from the youth categories to the senior squad, proving himself as one of the most talented players of his generation.

In the youth categories, he achieved significant success, winning numerous titles. Notably, he won two U19 ABA league championships and triumphed in the Junior EuroLeague in 2022, where he deservedly earned the MVP title of the final tournament in Belgrade.

His transition to the senior team was equally impressive. In 2023, he was named the best young player in the ABA league, further confirming his potential.

Last season, Đurišić was one of the main players for Mega MIS, leading the team to the semifinals of the regional competition. Averaging 15.4 points, 3.5 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game, he was a key player on the court, proving himself as a leader and a reliable team member.

He also played for Serbia’s U16 and U19 teams, and just two days after turning 18, he made his debut for the senior team.

Congratulations, Nikola!
