A current All-Euroleague First Team member and the only two-time scoring champ in the competition this decade, super-shooter Igor Rakocevic, has signed with Turkish champion Efes Pilsen for the coming season. Rakocevic (192, 31) arrives from Tau Ceramica, where in three seasons he reached the Euroleague Final Four twice and won a Spanish League title. A lethal scorer for many years, Rakocevic outdid himself last season, finishing with 18 points per game to run away with the Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy for the highest average over a minimum number of games. Rakocevic had won the Ford Trophy in his first season at Tau, too. In 2008-09, however, Rakocevic’s high shooting percentages across the board (50.7% 2FG, 39.8% 3FG, 89.5% FT) and his steady all-around game made him the third-ranked Euroleague player for the season as measure by the performance index rating. Rakocevic has filled the basket his whole career, averaging 13 points or more in every competition since 1997-98 except for one season he spent in the NBA playing 5 minutes per game.
