With Jordi Bertomeu counting his last days as EuroLeague Basketball's president and CEO, the competition's shareholders will have to elect his successor really soon.

Weight: 110 kg
Birth place: Zrenjanin, Serbia

According to Eurohoops' Aris Barkas, it looks like the person to take up the soon vacant spot has already been found. Dejan Bodiroga has been nominated for the position of the president and Interim Executive Director, and it remains for the shareholders to vote and decide on Friday, July 8.

Per the same report, since the former Serbian legend can not take both roles permanently beyond a short period of time, the position of CEO (Executive Director) held by Jordi Bertomeu will also be proposed to Marshall Glickman, son of the late Trailblazers patriarch Harry Glickman (died in 2020) and Bertomeu's former advisor in the mid-2000s. His selection will be voted on by the shareholders in the coming days.

In any case, the EuroLeague is entering a completely new era and the shareholders will be asked to decide on the persons who will take over the competitions' future. Bertomeu has been leading EuroLeague Basketball since its inception in 2000, but now a new scheme is about to take over.
