On Wednesday, the Golden State Warriors announced assistant coach Dejan Milojević died after suffering a heart attack at a private team dinner. He was 46.

The Bulls and Nikola Vucevic paid their respects on social media after learning of the death.

The 46-year-old Milojević, who was born in Serbia, joined the Warriors' staff in 2021.

Milojević played professional basketball all around the world, including stints in Serbia, Spain and Turkey.

After his playing career, Milojević became the head coach of Serbian team Mega Vizura. Nearly one decade later, Golden State hired him as an assistant coach where he worked closely with the forward-center and center positions. He worked mostly with Draymond Green and Kevon Looney and was credited for helping Looney improve his rebounding in recent years. Milojević also had a close relationship with fellow Serbian and NBA champion Nikola Jokić.
