Sacramento Kings assistant coach Igor Kokoskov has agreed to become the next head coach of Fenerbahce in Istanbul, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Kokoskov will replace the legendary Zeljko Obradovic, who mutually parted ways with Fenerbahce after coaching the club for seven years.

It will reportedly be a three-year guaranteed deal for Kokoskov.

Kokoskov previously coached Slovenia to a EuroBasket 2017 title that was led by Goran Dragic and Luka Doncic.

He was named the head coach of Serbia last November.

Dragic congratulated Kokoskov on Twitter:
