The Golden State Warriors are on the verge of making their first significant addition of the off-season.
According to multiple reports, the Warriors are expected to hire Serbian basketball legend Dejan Milojevic to join head coach Steve Kerr’s staff ahead of the 2021-2022 season. The Athletic’s Anthony Slater confirmed the news on Tuesday.
Unless they are followers of the Euroleague, some Dubs fans may not have heard of Milojevic, but the 44-year-old racked up some serious accolades over his 15-year playing career that ended in 2009. Among them are three Adriatic League MVP awards (ABA) and two scoring titles.
Since he began coaching in 2012, his achievements have included a Serbian Cup championship in 2016, and most recently, Montenegrin League and Montenegrin Cup titles in 2021. His most notable connection to the NBA today though is what will impress Warriors fans the most.
