Bruno Šundov (born February 10, 1980) is a Croatian professional basketball player. He is a 2.21 m (7 ft 3 in) and 122 kg (270 lbs.) center. He played for five different NBA teams and over 20 clubs around the world.
Šundov is the first European (and European-born) player to play as an import in the Philippines, and he is also the first Philippine Basketball Association import from Europe.
Šundov was a second-round draft pick of the Dallas Mavericks in the 1998 NBA Draft, aged only 18, and played sparingly for a number of teams during a seven-year spell: the Mavericks (1998–2000), Indiana Pacers (2000–02), Boston Celtics (2002–03), Cleveland Cavaliers (2003–04) and the New York Knicks (January 2004 and 2004–05). He averaged 1.7 points and one rebound per game over his NBA career.
In September 2005, after leaving the NBA, he signed with the Spanish club Etosa Alicante, and two seasons later he joined five times-in-a-row Cyprus national championship club Proteas EKA AEL, being crucial in the team's success in the Eurocup campaign, where the club finished in third place.
In February 2008, Šundov was signed by the Spanish ACB league club Grupo Begar León, which was eventually relegated after the 2007-08 ACB season. In September 2008, he joined ASK Riga in the Baltic League and, later that season moved to Adriatic League team Cibona Zagreb. He ended that season with Menorca Bàsquet in Spain, then joined Donetsk. When the latter team went bankrupt in January 2010, Sundov signed with Kavala of the Greek League.
The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters selected Sundov as an import for the 2013 Philippine Basketball Association's Commissioner's Cup. Later in 2013, Sundov signed with Al Shabab in the United Arab Emirates.
Croatian national team
Šundov first distinguished himself at the 1998 International Junior Tournament, which was won by the Croatian national junior team. He later won the silver medal at the 2001 FIBA Under-21 World Championship, averaging 10.7 points and 4.6 rebounds per game during the tournament.
