  • Dejan Radonjic began his professional career in 1991 as a player in the Yugoslavian league. He spent many years playing as a point guard for his local team Buducnost Podgorica, winning the YUBA League three times between 1998 and 2000.

     

    After his playing career, he began working as Podgorica’s assistant coach in 2004, before taking over the head coach role two years later. Alongside six championships in Montenegro, he took the club to its first ever Adriatic League (ABA) semi-final in 2010/11. Furthermore, Radonjic, father of two (son and daughter), trained the now NBA superstar Nikola Vucevic, before he was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers. 

     

    In 2013, Radonjic took over at Red Star Belgrade and won the championship as well as the Adriatic League the following year. This triumph brought an end to Partizan Belgrade’s dominance, the club which had previously been unbeaten in the Serbian League since 2001. Together with Stefan Jovic and Maik Zibres, he went on to crown a successful Euro-League campaign by reaching the 2016 playoffs.

     

    Following a surprising move to FC Bayern Basketball in April 2018, he was not only reunited with these two players, but also won the BBL title on his first attempt.
