Ratko Varda

Ratko Varda (215 cm) of Radnicki Kragujevac (Serbia, Adriatic League) will sit out the next three months. He injured his Achilles tendon during Monday’s 78-76 victory over BC Partizan Beograd (Serbia, Adriatic League). The big centre has undergone surgery and is not expected to return for three months.

Varda is an experienced campaigner having plied his trade for some of the biggest teams in Europe. These include Union Olimpija Ljubljana (Slovenia), Real Madrid (Spain), Asseco Prokom Gdynia (Poland), BC Kyiv (Ukraine), and Besiktas Istanbul (Turkey). The 33-year old Serbian has also flirted with the NBA. He played one game for the Detroit Pistons during the 2001-2002 season, before joining the Washington Wizards between August and October 2002.

Ratko Varda joined Radnicki in November 2012 from Tehran (Iran), and in his 12 games in the Adriatic League he has posted 9.7ppg, and 1.8rpg.
