Croatia announce Aleksandar Petrovic as national team coach

The Croatian Basketball Federation have announced that Aleksandar Petrovic will lead the national team into Eurobasket 2017.

Petrovic will take over from Velimir Perasovic, who left his post after Eurobasket 2015, where Croatia were eliminated in the second round.

This will be Petrovic’s third stint as thread coach of Croatia. He guided them to a third placed finish in 1995 and the Cibona play caller also had spells between 1999 and 2001.
