Ivan is an experienced, qualified player with serious experience in playing for the national team. I would like to note that he arrived in good physical shape, which speaks of his responsibility and serious attitude. Yes, he will still need to adapt to tactical schemes, but I'm sure that he will be able to help the team in the coming matches. A strong, fast player who can defend well in several positions at once. With him, the rotation will be better, which is especially important in EuroCup.
