Serbia-Montenegro's army says it has filed charges against former NBA star Vlade Divac for evading the military draft.

Divac, 37, was obliged by the law to join the compulsory six-month military service by the age of 35, the state prosecutors' office said Wednesday.

It asked Serbia-Montenegro's foreign ministry "to determine Divac's citizenship and his home address" to be able to carry out the legal proceedings and hand him the draft notice.

Divac, who lives in Los Angeles, could face a one-year prison sentence in his native country if he does not join the army soon, legal experts said.

Divac ended his 16-year NBA playing career last month, taking a job with the Los Angeles Lakers as a liaison and scout in Europe.

I can't seem him spending a year in jail, but I also don't see him joining the military so it will be interesting to see what happens.
