BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) -- Former NBA center Vlade Divac has undergone emergency stomach surgery in Serbia.

Doctors said Saturday in a statement that Divac was admitted to a Belgrade hospital after feeling ''strong pains in his stomach.''

The statement said his life was not threatened. It did not specify his exact health problem.

The 46-years-old Divac, who heads the Serbian Olympic Committee, started and ended his 16-year NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers. From 1989 to 2005 he played for the Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Charlotte Hornets, and was an All-Star in 2001.
