Uroš Slokar Slovenian pronunciation: [ˈurɔʃ ˈslokar]) (born May 14, 1983 in Ljubljana, SR Slovenia, SFR Yugoslavia) is a Slovenian professional basketball player formerly of the NBA's Toronto Raptors who currently plays for KK Union Olimpija.


Pro career

After playing two seasons in the Slovenian basketball league, Slokar moved to Italy's Serie A in 2003, where he represented Benneton Treviso and Pallalcesto Amatori Udine. Upon his 2005 NBA Draft selection by the Toronto Raptors (58th overall), he remained a further season in Europe. His NBA season input consisted of 20 games, whose outcomes were often decided, as the Raptors won a first ever Atlantic Division title.

On August 16, 2007, Slokar signed a one-year deal with Triumph Lyubertsy, formerly known as Dynamo Moscow Region, which plays in the Russian Super League and the European Eurocup. After one season in Russia, he returned to Italy and signed with Fortitudo Bologna for the next two years.

Slovenian national team

Internationally, Slokar has played with Slovenia at the 2000 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship, the 2002 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship, the 2005, the 2007 European Championships, the 2009 European Championships, and the 2006 World Championship.
