Career: Bistrica (Slovenia-Division 1B, 1995-96), Maribor (Slovenia-Division 1A, 1996-97), Lasko (Slovenia-Division 1A, 1997-99), Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia-Division 1A, 1999-2001), Virtus Bologna (Italy-Lega, 2001-03), Krka (Slovenia-Division 1A, 2003-04), Varese (Italy-Lega, 2004-05), Fortitudo Bologna (Italy-Lega, 2005-06). Selected in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft (#46), by the Denver Nuggets.

Sani was "left for dead" in 2002 after a potentially career-ending knee injury. However, he was operated on and managed to overcome a genetic knee disorder and is now having a respectable career at the point guard spot. But he was poised for far greater accomplishments after a stellar junior career. Sani joined the national team at just 17 years of age. After sitting out the whole 2002-03 season, he gradually recovered to an above average level. Sani is a natural leader who can play both guard positions.

He is an excellent shooter and one-on-one player, who is also a good ball handler, passer and one who performs well in the clutch. Becirovic is locked to make the team for Japan and prove his injuries are a thing of the past.
