KK DYNAMIC VIP PAY is pleased to announce that we signed Mert Akay, one of the most talented young European players. Mert has been with Dynamic during the pre-season period and after a short hold-up due to administrative procedures, he will play the first official match on Sunday against Borac Čačak.
Mert is 19 years old, 196 cm tall and plays as a point guard. Last year, he played for Turkey’s Darüşşafaka, where he recorded an average of 11 minutes per game in the Euroleague, with 3 points per game.
“I want to emphasize that I am very happy to be in Dynamic and excited to play on Sunday. Although Dynamic is a young club, a family atmosphere is present and I feel great. Besides my teammates who helped me a lot, coach Miro Alilović is one of the main factors that made me decide to come to Belgrade. His experience in player development means a lot to me and I think that is how I will best achieve my goal – playing basketball at the highest level in Europe. Our goal is to finish the season at the top of the table in the local and regional leagues, as well as play basketball that we and the audience will enjoy. I wasn’t sure how I would adapt in Belgrade, but I got used to it very quickly. The city is very pretty, like a smaller version of Istanbul and I’m very happy to be here.”
Dynamic will play the Serbian Basketball League derby against the Borac Čačak on Sunday at 7pm in Hala Sportova “Ranko Žeravica” in New Belgrade.
