Here is a quick Q & A with Bogdan:

– What are you looking forward to at the Scorers 1st Showcase?

First of all I m very honored I’m invited to the Scorers 1st Showcase. Scorers 1st is an internationally respected agency and it’s great honor to be a part of their Showcase.  I’m looking forward to networking with players that are in search for new playing opportunities on European market.

 What is the most difficult/important part of scouting and recruiting players for you each summer and why do you think the Showcase can/will help?

These days it is way easier to get in contact with players, but itÄs always great if you can meet them in person and build strong connection during the scouting process. I think the Showcase can give a great opportunity to coaches and players to establish that connection. I think it’s a huge help also for players to show their skills and also to get used to the European style of game. Also it’s great that players and coaches exchange their experiences with each other and help each other in pursuing their dreams.

– What can players expect from you during the time in Düsseldorf?

I’m really looking forward to helping players during the Showcase to promote themselves and show their full potential. I believe I can share my experience with them so they can have easier process in finding new jobs. I will also share my network with them hoping it can  help them in getting jobs they deserve. Working in Denmark and Hungary as basketball coach but being born and raise in Serbia I believe the network I have, can provide and help them in the short and long run.

As I already said will be great to meet them in person during the recruitment process and then maybe the possibility arrives with some of the players from Showcase and we may even end up working together in the same clubs.
