Edin Atić (born January 19, 1997) is a Bosnian professional basketball player who plays for AEK Athens. Standing at 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m) and weighing 195 lbs. (88 kg), Atić is mainly a shooting guard-small forward, but he can also play as a point forward.
Atić was born in Bugojno, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Raised in his native town, Atić started playing basketball with Spars Sarajevo. In 2013, he signed with Spars Sarajevo.
In 2013, Atić signed a deal with Bosnian club Spars Sarajevo, of the Bosnian Championship. He stayed a member of Spars Sarajevo from 2013 to September 2015, when the Greek club AEK bought his player rights with a transfer fee. In January 2016, he returned to Spars Sarajevo, after AEK loaned him back to the club, for the remainder of the 2015–16 season.
On September 1, 2015, Greek club AEK Athens, of the Greek Basket League, confirmed that Atić would join the club from Spars Sarajevo, for a buyout transfer fee amount of €750,000 euros. Atić signed a six-year contract with AEK, that was worth €1.5 million euros net income. In January 2016, AEK loaned him back to Spars Sarajevo for the rest of the season.
Before the start of the 2016–17 Greek Basket League season, Atić managed to have some very good friendly games, including a 12-point game against the defending EuroLeague champions, CSKA Moscow. Due to this, AEK initially decided to keep him on their roster for the 2016–17 season, rather than loan him to another club again.
However, due to FIBA's rules and regulations of the Champions League, he was ruled ineligible to play in the league, because he was not originally registered for the Greek League as a foreign player in the league's first roster designation period. Due to Champions League rules, such players cannot play in the league, unlike European-wide leagues like the EuroLeague and EuroCup, where no such limitations exist. As a result of this, AEK decided to loan him to another club for the 2016–17 season.
On November 2, 2016, AEK loaned Atić to the Greek club Trikala Aries, for the remainder of the 2016–17 season. However, after playing with Trikala in 7 games during the 2016–17 Greek Basket League season, his player loan was cancelled, and he returned to AEK.
Atić played at the 2014 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship with the Bosnian Under-18 national team, averaging 16.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. He also played at the 2015 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship, where he led his team in scoring, at 16.0 points per game. He also averaged 7.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game during the tournament.
