Frank Ntilikina Nearing Deal with Partizan.

Partizan Mozzart Bet hopes to boost the squad with French guard Frank Ntilikina.

After seven years in the NBA, Frank Ntilikina has been looking toward resuming his career in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.

Ntilikina, 25, went from considering his options to nearing a deal with Partizan Mozzart Bet, according to Serbian outlet Meridian sport.

The main focus of the offseason is representing the hosting country France in the 2024 Olympic Games. A regular at the junior level, he went from being named tournament MVP and capturing gold in the 2016 FIBA U18 European Championship to helping his country win bronze medals in the 2019 FIBA World Cup. He also played in the 2020 Olympic Games held in 2021. However, he missed the following 2022 EuroBasket and 2023 World Cup.

Before making his way to 336 appearances in the NBA, Ntilikina entered the league as the eighth pick of the draft in 2017, selected by the New York Knicks. From four years in the Big Apple and two with the Dallas Mavericks, he joined the Charlotte Hornets before the 2023-24 season. After putting up 1.0 points and 1.2 rebounds per contest over five games, he was waived in February.

Highlighting his stint with SIG Strasbourg from 2015 to 2017, Ntilikina played in four games of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, five games of the 7DAYS EuroCup, and 14 games of the Basketball Champions League.

Reinforcing the wing positions, the team coached by Zeljko Obradovic opened the offseason by signing Gabriel Iffe Lundberg and Vanja Marinkovic to two-year contracts.
