He started playing basketball with KK Bosna in 2001. He moved to the Anadolu Efes junior team after his outstanding success with KK Bosna in 2007. Due to his paternal Turkish background he was immediately naturalized as a Turkish citizen due to Turkey's right of return laws and represents the Turkish National Team.
