Career highlights and awards

Mladen Šekularac (Serbian Cyrillic: Младен Шекуларац, born January 29, 1981) is a Montenegrin basketball coach and former professional player.

Career[edit]

At one point Šekularac was considered to be one of the biggest European talents and was projected as NBA draft lottery pick candidate, his reputation was such that his club at the time, KK FMP, put a €1.3 million price tag on his transfer. However, inconsistent form and unsteady overall progress made many uncertain about his potential.

He was an early entry candidate for the 2000 and 2001 NBA drafts before withdrawing each time, he stayed, however, in the 2002 NBA draft and ended up being taken in the second round with the 55th pick by the Dallas Mavericks. They traded his rights to the Golden State Warriors in 2004.
