Darko Rajakovic Rumors

Grizzlies hiring Darko Rajakovic

Adrian Wojnarowski: The Memphis Grizzlies are hiring Phoenix’s Darko Rajaković as an assistant coach, sources tell ESPN. Rajakovic replaces Neven Spahija, who recently left the Grizzlies for a coaching job overseas. Rajakovic, an assistant with the Serbian national team, built a strong reputation working with young players with Oklahoma City and Phoenix. Ideal fit for the Grizzlies trajectory.
While Ferguson gave himself “about a week and half off” to start the offseason, he was back at work in short order, first in Dallas and recently back in Oklahoma City, where a typical workday begins at 9 a.m. with weightlifting, followed by a two-hour on-court workout. Often, he works under the tutelage of Thunder assistant Darko Rajakovic, known for some unorthodox training methods that famously once included gut-punching Steven Adams for missing free throws.
