The other team Ukic played that season for was Openjobmetis VA (also in Serie A) in Italian. In 9 games he averaged 12.0ppg, 2.0rpg and 5.6apg. He also played 4 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he got 11.8ppg, 1.5rpg and 5.8apg. Ukic also spent pre-season at KK Split in Croatian league that year. In 2005 he was drafted by Toronto Raptors (NBA) in second round (41st overall). Ukic has been also a member of Croatian international program for some years. He has regularly played for Croatian senior team since 2002 and previously for U18 National Team back in 2002. Ukic represented Croatia at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) this year. His stats at that event were 5 games: 5.4ppg, 3.6rpg, 3.2apg, 1.2spg, FGP: 41.2%, 3PT: 28.6%, FT: 50.0%. Ukic is quite experienced player. He has played also professionally in Spain (FC Barcelona and Laboral Kutxa), Turkey (Fenerbahce), NBA (Milwaukee Bucks), Greece (Panathinaikos) and Croatia (Cedevita). Ukic could be described:
very quick point guard, with good court vision and a rare ability to penetrate; needs to add size and a reliable shot, and to mature in defense.
World Championships U18 '03 comments (by Yarone Arbel):
The star of the Croatian team. Led the senior team of Split to an historical championship in the last season. There is so much talent in the hands of Roko-Leni, that can fulfill his dream and make it to the NBA if he keeps developing.
Not another scorer that can lead the ball. Ukic is a true PG that can control the tempo of the game, with the ability to score on his own. Great penetration, his court vision and passing ability is very high, hit the 3 pointer, even under pressure, a clutch player that know how, want and can take the game on himself in the last minutes. Maybe too much sometimes, but in time experience will fix that too. Hard worker on defense and a great stealer, but not a huge defensive player. Still way too weak but talent is just oozing out of him. One big pleasure. Led all players in steals+assists+blocks-turnovers ratio, 4th in points, 5th in assists and 3rd in steals. What more can you ask for?.
19-year old forward Efstratios Kalogerias (203-97). He has played for the last two years at the junior team of Olympiacos in the A1.
