Beşiktaş Emlakjet signed a loan agreement with Marko Simonovic from Crvena Zvezda until the end of the season per Eurohoops sources.

The 24-year-old Montenegrin center returned from the NBA this summer, where he spent two seasons as a player for the Chicago Bulls, competing mainly in the G-League.

One of the top European talents of his generation, Simonovic will have the chance in the EuroCup to get more minutes and a bigger role after playing in 11 EuroLeague games.

In three of those games, Simonovic was a starter, but except for scoring 14 points against ASVEL, he averaged in total of 2.8 points.

He is the second big man who is leaving the roster of Zvezda. Last week, Ognen Kuzmic left the team after four years and signed with KK FMP.
