|Career highlights and awards|
Sesar started training basketball when he was ten. He was 182 cm tall at the time. In 1992 he left Zrinjski Mostar for Split. Since the youth coach did not consider him a prospect, his father took him to Zagreb. In 1993, he started his professional career there. After six successful seasons with Zagreb, in 1999, Sesar signed his second professional contract, namely with Cibona. At the 2000 NBA Draft he was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics and then traded to the Boston Celtics. However, he never played a game for the Celtics or any other NBA team.
