Legendary coach, Dusko Vujosevic is history for Partizan and who better to replace him than his assistant of five years, Vlada Jovanovic.

These where Jovanovic’s first statements:

“It is big honor for me to lead a club like Partizan,” Jovanovic said. “I am grateful to president Predrag Danilovic and sporting director Dragan Todoric, and most of all to Dusko Vujosevic, who recommended me. That means lot to me and I will do my best to justify that trust. Partizan is big club not only in Serbia, but in Europe and I am honored to coach one of Europe’s greats.”

Partizan also made their first transfer of the offseason, in signing Serbian prospect Dragan Milosavljevic. The 21-year old shooting guard played for Radnicki last season, averaging 10.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists in the Adriatic League.
