NBA: assistant coach with the Warriors, Dejan Milojevic is dead

Terrible news from Salt Lake City. Hospitalized Tuesday evening “after suffering a medical emergency during a private team dinner,” as reported by the Warriors, Dejan Milojevic died this Wednesday. Assistant to Steve Kerr on the Golden State staff, the 46-year-old Serbian technician suffered a heart attack. “We are absolutely devastated by the sudden death of Dejan,” laments coach Kerr in a press release. This is a shocking and tragic loss for everyone associated with the Warriors and an incredibly difficult time for his family, friends and all of us who had the incredible pleasure of working with him. In addition to an excellent basketball coach, Dejan was one of the most beautiful people, one of the most positive people I have known, someone who brings joy and light every day with his passion and energy. explains the Dubs coach again.

Note that the meeting between the Utah Jazz and the Golden State Warriors, scheduled for Wednesday, had already been postponed earlier in the evening. European champion in 2001 with Yugoslavia as a player, Dejan Milojevic began his coaching career at the head of the Serbian club Mega Basket before several experiences as an assistant in the NBA. He also served as an assistant on the staff of the Serbia team, said to be close to Nikola Jokic, his illustrious compatriot from Denver. Milojevic took the reins of Buducnost in 2020-21 before joining Steve Kerr's staff, participating in the conquest of the NBA championship title in 2022.
