The former Sydney Kings guard said it was an easy decision to remain in South Australia.

“This decision was a no-brainer for me, I am somewhere where I am wanted,” Vasiljevic said.

“I could have tested the free agency market, but I’m where I want to be.

“This season has been great in front of sell out home crowds and I’m looking forward to building on that over the next three years.

“I think this club has a great history with all the championships and past players and I want to bring that back to the city of Adelaide,’ Vasiljevic said.

“I want to give my all for the club and the city and hopefully we can build from here, it’s exciting times.”

The 36ers take on Vasiljevic’s former club, the Sydney Kings, on Friday.
