Darko
Rajakovic
INVICTUS Sports Group is very glad to announce an historical event: Darko Rajakovic (agency: INVICTUS Sports Group ) will be the first European head coach ever to lead an American basketball team! He just joined the NBA Finalist Oklahoma City Thunder to work together with the technical staff during the 2012/2013 pre-season, then starting from November he will be the head coach of the Tulsa 66ers, the second team of OKC. There have already been European coaches to make the role of assistants in NBA or college basketball teams, but it will be the first time for an European coach to be charged of the role of head coach in the United States. For sure, this opportunity came to Darko because of the important experience that he made in America in the past years, studying and learning basketball coaching in particular from Gregg Popovich (San Antonio Spurs) and Lute Olson (University of Arizona), then working some seasons for the San Antonio Spurs as scouting consultant since 2004 and as assistant coach at the NBA Summer League 2006. He also worked in a lot of important international tournaments and events, like Basketball Without Borders, NBA and Fiba Camp and the Eurocamp in Treviso, Italy, in 2003 and 2004, as well as other prestigious basketball camps in Serbia, Greece, Spain and Italy. Hardworking, dedicated and high educated - he speaks Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian language as native, but also excellent English and Spanish and basic Greek language - he is a very young but already experienced coach. Born on February 22nd 1979 in Serbia, Darko Rajakovic is highly motivated and ambitious with capability of individual and team working, he also has strong communication and motivation skills and is specialized for player development. In the last three seasons he was the head coach of Espacio Torrelodones in the Spanish EBA League, leading a very young group to positive results. His basketball coaching career started when he was only 16 years old, as the youngest coach ever in the history of BC Borac Cacak, and since 2007 and 2009 he also led the Basketball Academy for Individual Workouts in Belgrade - after graduating in Basketball Coach and Sports Management. At the age of 19 he joined Red Star Belgrade as the (youngest, again) coach of the Under 20 and Under 18 team. During the 8 years spent with Red Star, he won the State and National Youth Championship titles twice, specializing in working with young players, but also assisting the head coach of the senior team in pre-season. During the month of October, Darko worked with the technical staff of the Oklahoma City Thunder, and now this is a fundamental step in his career, as well as in the "basketball network" of INVICTUS Sports Group between Europe, Russia and America.

SAM PRESTI: "DARKO BRING US THE EUROPEAN INFLUENCE"

In the official press release announcing that Darko Rajakovic is the new head coach of the Tulsa 66ers in D-League for the 2012/2013 season starting on November 23rd, the Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Sam Presti commented this historical decision: We are pleased to welcome Darko to the Thunder organization, we value his diverse basketball background and embrace the European influence that he will have on our development program in Tulsa. It's not a case that previously in his career Sam Presti had a very important role in the organization of the San Antonio Spurs, the first team to believe and invest in creating a strong connection between NBA and European basketball. In the same way, Darko collaborated for years with the Spurs organization, studying and learning basketball coaching in particular from Gregg Popovich, then working as scout consultant for the Spurs since 2004 and as assistant coach at the NBA Summer League 2006.

ZORAN SAVIC: INVICTUS WILL FOCUS IN CREATING NEW OPPORTUNITIES BETWEEN USA AND EUROPEAN BASKETBALL

The President of INVICTUS Sports Group, Zoran Savic expressed his deep satisfaction for the joining of Darko Rajakovic to the Tulsa 66ers in the important and historical role of head coach: This is a very important step for European basketball. After the experience made last season by Ettore Messina working with coach Mike Brown in the technical staff of the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA, this represent one more step forward: for the first time ever, an European head coach will lead a basketball team in the USA. For sure the longtime collaboration of Darko with the San Antonio Spurs, directly collaborating with Sam Presti, played a decisive role in this decision. In the same time, this is one more confirmation that the connection between NBA and European basketball is becoming stronger and stronger in both directions, and for this reason in the next months INVICTUS Sports Group will focus its work also to develop this connection and create new opportunities.
