ORnot for another. Neven Spahija by Dusko Ivanovic. Barely an hour has taken Baskonia in remove a coach and put another, two old acquaintances of the Baskonite fans.
With the dismissal of Dusko Ivanovic, Neven Spahija lands, the Croatian coach who will now take over Bitci Baskonia and who will have the mission to lift a season that has started very poor both in the Endesa League and in the Euroleague for the Baskonians.
The memory of Spahija at the Buesa Arena could not be better, after the Vitoria team under his mandate win their second ACB league in 2006-2007, as well as a Super Cup. He was also a finalist in the Copa del Rey and the Final Four.
Five years younger than Ivanovic, at 59 years old, Spahija arrives in Vitoria after being assistant in the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies and to have directed the Maccabi of Tel Aviv and the Chinese Shanghai Sharks.
Baskonia is eleventh in the Endesa League with a balance of 4 wins and 6 losses and must straighten the course to get into the Copa del Rey, while in Euroleague, drive a 3-6 that has him away from the top eight places that give access to the quarterfinals.
