Upon hearing the news of his coach’s sudden death, Golden State postponed its game against the Utah Jazz. “We are devastated by his death. It is shocking and tragic for everyone involved in the club. It has been an incredibly difficult time for his family, friends and all of us who have enjoyed working with him,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. Milojevic, who was in his third season with Golden State, was an assistant coach for the Serbian national team. Before Jokic moved to the U.S., he trained Jokic as a superstar in Serbia.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said, “The NBA mourns the sudden death of coach Milojevic, who was a beloved colleague and dear friend of many people around the world in basketball.” ESPN said, “Milojevic worked closely with Ivica Zubac (LA Clippers), Goga Vitase (Orland Magic), and Boban Marjanovic (Houston Rockets) while working in Europe. He mainly worked with big men like Kevon Rooney in the Golden State.”
