Djuric was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzogovina, but internationally represents Greece. He was on the expanded Greek roster for this summer’s World League (they finished last), but didn’t play. This is his 2nd season with Verona, and last season he led the team to a 5th-place finish in the regular-season table and an opening-round playoff loss.

So far this season, Verona is off to a 4-2 record good enough for 7th place in the standings of Italy’s Seria A1.
