Panathinaikos announced that they will be parting ways with Serbian coach Sasa Dordevic. The decision came after Panathinaikos' third loss to Laboral Kutxa in the Euroleague Playoffs, which eliminated them from the competition.
The Greens bad showing in the playoffs resulted in a 3-0 sweep by Laboral Kutxa and ended with Dordevic's departure. Dordevic took over Panathinaikos during the summer and led them to the Greek Basketball Cup Title. From there, Panathinaikos finished behind Olympiacos in the A1 Basket League regular season and failed to reach the Euroleague Final-4. This is the third straight season that the club has released their manager before the end of the season.
