Ante Zizic to concentrate on Celtics rather than EuroBasket

NBA prospect Ante Zizic will not represent Croatia at this summer’s Eurobasket.

According to Croatian media sources, Zizic, who played for Darussafaka Dogus last season is focused on the the summer as he will join up with the Boston Celtics, who selected him with the 23rd pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.

And due to the upcoming commitments with the Celtics, Zizic, who is yet to represent the national team at senior level has informed Croatia coach Aleksandar Petrovic that he will not be available this summer.

Despite the blank canvas in the senior front, Zizic has won a bronze and a silver with Croatia at junior level, the latter being at the U19 world championships where they were narrowly defeated 79-71 by the USA in Crete, Greece.
