Krunoslav Simon spent 5 seasons wearing the Anadolu Efes Istanbul uniform, winning many important trophies along the way. Now, his contributions will be forever enshrined in the Sinan Erdem Hall.

The Turkish club has released a statement that Simon's no. 44 jersey is going to be retired next week in a home game against Olympiacos Piraeus.

In his year with Efes, Simon has won 2 Turkish Cups and 2 Turkish Super Cups as well as 2 Turkish League titles. Nevertheless, the two most important trophies in his collection are the 2021 and 2022 EuroLeague champion titles.

This summer, the veteran forward denied offers from Russia to join his hometown club in Zagreb, Croatia - Cedevita Junior.

"I decided on Cedevita Junior because I think the club is superbly organized, the club has a good atmosphere, and they work a lot with young players. I hope that with my experience I can help the young players to be as good as possible," the player said in an official statement.
