Another talented big man from the plethora of Slovenia's pool of skilled power forwards and centers.
Originating from Croatia, Zeljko has a big, thick body and takes up a lot of space in the paint. He is very effective with his mid-range jumper and can also knock down the 3-point shot. Decent passer. After starting at just 16 with powerhouse Olimpija Ljubljana, Zeljko moved to Kranj looking for more playing time. He came back to the capital, altering Olimpija and Slovan for three years. He then played two years in the German league (Braunschweig) where he took part in the All Star Game. Zeljko finally came back to his native country last season (Helios Domzale), and now he's fighting for a spot in the national team roster as an underdog.
