Hacettepe University (TBL) strengthened their roster with addition of 34-year old American point guard Anthony Grundy (189-79, college: North Carolina State). He played recently at Enosi Kalathosfairisis Kavalas in Greek A1 league. In 10 games he recorded 10.7ppg, 2.4rpg, 3.9apg and 2.6spg this season. Grundy also played 2 games in Balkan League where he averaged impressive 18.5ppg, 3.0rpg, 6.0apg and 2.0spg. He also spent pre-season at Mahram (Superleague) in Iran earlier that year. The last season Grundy played at Mersin. In 30 games he averaged remarkable 17.0ppg, 3.5rpg, 3.8apg and 1.6spg (in top 5). He ended the previous (2011) season at Bucaneros (LPB) in Venezuelan league. But the most of that year Grundy spent at Petron Blaze (PBA) in Filipino league. In four games he averaged great 20.5ppg, 8.0rpg, 8.0apg and 2.0spg.

Grundy is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Cyprus, Germany, Israel, Italy (Naturhouse Ferrara and BancaTercas), Sweden, NBA (Atlanta Hawks), Venezuela (Marinos) and D-League (Roanoke D.). Grundy attended North Carolina State until 2002 and it is his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball. The scouts decsribe him following way:
A skinny scorer who can spend time in both guard positions. Has quick hands, is very athletic, can create and attacks the basket looking to score. Doesn' t have the size to play the SG at NBA level, but could improve his court vision and become a good PG. Passing and ball-handling are yet OK. Long arms make hiem a strong defender, leaping ability and timing allow him to grab more rebounds than expected.

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. B will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. Kalogerias was selected to U17 National Team in 2014.
