Milenko Tepić (Serbian Cyrillic: Миленко Тепић; born February 27, 1987 in Novi Sad, SFR Yugoslavia) is a Serbian professional basketball player for Lietuvos rytas of the Lithuanian Basketball League (LBL). He is 2.02 m (6 ft 7.5 in) tall combo guard/point forward.

Player profile

Tepić won both the 2006 and 2007 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship gold medals with the Serbian national under age 20 team in 2006 and he then developed into a key member of Partizan's team at the Euroleague level. A favorite of Coach Dusan Ivkovic, Tepic has a wide range of offensive skills which he uses to good effect. As a combo guard-point forward he is a solid shooter and passer.

He is also a good decision maker and he doesn't jack up three-point shots unless his feet are set for shooting. He is also a smart player at the defensive end, which is something that was recognized by the 2009 Euroleague champions, Panathinaikos, who signed him to a three-year deal prior to the 2009–10 season.

Professional career

Tepić began his career playing with the KK Sports World youth teams in Serbia. He made his professional debut with the Serbian League club Vojvodina in 2002. In 2006, Tepić signed with the Euroleague club Partizan Belgrade.

In 2009, he signed a 3-year contract worth 2.5 million euros net income (after taxes and agent's fees are paid) with the Greek League club Panathinaikos.[1][2][3] He played two seasons with the Greek club and won Euroleague in 2010.

On 26 September 2011 he signed two-year contract with the Spanish club Cajasol Sevilla.[4] On July 25, 2013, he signed a one-year deal with Lietuvos rytas.[5]

Serbian national team

Tepić won the gold medal at both the 2003 FIBA Europe Under-16 Championship and the 2005 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship. He also won the gold medal at both the 2006 and 2007 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championships.

He is also a member of the senior Serbian national basketball team and with the senior team he played at the 2007 FIBA European Championship. At the 2009 FIBA European Championship, he won the silver medal with Serbia.
