The Phoenix Suns made history this off-season by making Igor Kokoskov the first ever NBA head coach from outside North America. Kokoskov is of Serbian descent. Here are some Igor Kokoskov Phoenix Suns Workout Drills.
Kokoskov was most recently an assistant coach with the Utah Jazz and became a hot name for coaching jobs this past season. While not necessarily being a household name, Kokoskov has had a long tenure in the NBA with assistant coaching stints with the LA Clippers, Detroit Pistons, Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, and the Utah Jazz stretching all the way back to 2000.
He has also had an extensive national team coaching career. He was an assistant with Serbia and Montenegro in 2004-05 under European coaching legend Zeljko Obradovic. He has also been head coach of the Georgia national team for 7 years, and most recently the Slovenian national team where he helped win the Eurobasket 2017 gold medal and coached #3 overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft, Luka Doncic.
