Sporting this afternoon announced two reinforcements to its basketball team, which this season will have Pedro Nuno in charge of the team, the coach who replaced Luis Magalhaes. Portuguese winger from Montenegro Marko Lunkowicz and North American base DJ Wiener are the new faces of Lions.
Marko Lunkovic has been in Portugal since 2012, where he first joined to promote Barcelona, where he was a key element of Minho’s squad for three seasons. A performance that led him to leave for Benfica, where he played for two years. He left for Eliabome – he was coached by Pedro Nuno and won the Portuguese Cup – and also wore the shirts of Oliverense and Vitoria, all in the league. In the last two seasons, he moved to Proliga to represent Galomar, from Madeira. He won eight titles in our country: Dorian, 3 Portuguese Cups, 1 Hugo dos Santos Cup, 2 Super Cup.
“Sporting is the biggest club in Portugal and always has the highest goals. I also have high goals in life and that is what made me accept this invitation. Since their return, Sporting has been the most dominant team in the sport. The 31-year-old, 2.00m, said I Very happy to be a part of this family.”
In turn, DJ Fenner also has a former Portuguese basketball mascot, having defended the Immortal colors, in 2020/2021, averaging 20.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists. He helped lead the Algarve to the league semi-finals and the Portuguese Cup final, along with Tanner Omlide and Antonio Monteiro, who will meet again in Alvalade. He graduated from the University of Nevada, and last spent in Dabrowa Górnicza (Poland).
“When they showed interest, I spoke with my family for a few weeks before making the decision and we came to the conclusion that it would be a good opportunity for everyone. Having already played in the Portuguese league, I felt that I could come and make an impact and help the team win this year,” said the aged athlete 28 years old who is 1.98 meters tall.
