Filip Petrusev Rumors
As the earlier reports foreshadowed, Anadolu Efes announced that the club has reached a one-year agreement with Filip Petrusev. After two years at Gonzaga, Petrusev played with Mega Soccerbet his first professional season and he had huge success. He was named the ABA League MVP, Top Scorer, and Top Prospect. He averaged 23.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists.
He also showcased his talents with the Serbian national team in the EuroBasket as well as the Olympic Qualifiers. Petrusev was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers this year as the 50th overall pick and played in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Filip Petrusev was selected with the 50th overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the recent NBA draft. Players in that selection range tend to be stashed outside the NBA and that is looking like the case for the young Serbian big. “We think Petrusev is someone who has a real chance to help us down the road,” explained 76ers president Daryl Morey, “He’ll likely start overseas and be someone who could come over later.”
