Rade Zagorac joins Milos Teodosic and Bogdan Bogdanovic as Serbians to make the jump to the NBA this summer as he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies, the team announced.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN added that the deal is three-years, 3.9-million with two-years, 2.3-million guaranteed.

Zagorac was the 35th overall pick of the 2016 NBA draft, selected by the Boston Celtics. His draft rights along with the draft rights to Deyonta Davis were then traded to the Grizzlies in exchange for Memphis’s 2019 first round pick.

Zagorac is 6-foot-9 and weights 205-pounds. He spent last season with Serbian club Mega Leks. The club played in the Adriatic League as well as the FIBA Basketball Champions League. In FIBA Champions League play Zagorac averaged 12.6ppg, 6rpg, 2.5apg, 1.8spg, and shot 32-percent from three.

Zagorac is also the fourth NBA player Mega Leks has produced, joining Ivica Zuba, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Nikola Jokic.
