Career highlights and awards

Nenad Mijatović (Cyrillic: Ненад Мијатовић; born January 22, 1987) is a Montenegrin professional basketball player. He last played for RSB Berkane in Morocco.

Professional career[edit]

Mijatović was born in Split, Croatia, but moved with his family to Montenegro in the early 1990s, immediately joining the youth system of Budućnost Podgorica. Mijatović was an exceptional talent, so much that he made his professional debut at the age of 14. He kept developing his game as it was expected, and by the age of 18, he was one of the best young players in Serbia and Montenegro. However, in 2007, Mijatović suffered a leg injury that slowed his progress. In the following seasons, Mijatović also had stints abroad, in Spain and Turkey, but failed to make an impression.

National team[edit]

Mijatović won three gold medals with the junior national teams of Serbia and Montenegro at the FIBA tournaments. After Montenegro became independent country, Mijatović represented their national team.
