Coach Aleksandar Dzikic is back at Buducnost’s bench with a two-year deal, as it was announced Tuesday.

Per EuroCup:

Buducnost VOLI Podgorica reached an agreement with head coach Aleksandar Dzikic, who signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season, the club announced Tuesday. Dzikic, age 50, last coached Spanish side Movistar Estudiantes, but part ways with that team in January 2020.

This is Dzikic’s second stint with Buducnost. In the first one, from 2017 to December 2018, Dzikic helped Buducnost win the Montenegrin Cup and the Adriatic League titles in 2018. It was the first and only Adriatic League title ever won by a Montenegrin team, and allowed Buducnost to take part in the 2018-19 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague campaign.

Dzikic started his coaching career with Union Olimpija Ljubljana and Krka Novo Mesto of Slovenia, and also coached Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius of Lithuania and Partizan NIS Belgrade of Serbia. He helped Krka win three Slovenian League and two Slovenian Cup titles, also lifting the EuroChallenge trophy in 2011. Dzikic also won the Slovenian double – league and cup trophies – with Olimpija in 2008 and led Rytas to the EuroCup semifinals in 2012.
