In an interview for “K1,” he revealed that the Red and Whites had the opportunity to sign the top stars of Baskonia – Howard and Moneki, but allegedly Ivanović did not want them in the team. “The coach made several cardinal mistakes, not Sferopulos but the one before him, we all know who he was.
He brought in some players, and Howard and Moneki from Baskonia were offered to him. They were on the list and offered.
Ivanović didn’t want them, they were not to their taste, it is paradoxical that he is their coach now. Duško Ivanović selected this team.
It is a shame that you don’t have a team competitive for the Top 8, with such an army of fans,” Gurović said. Gurović believes that the Red and Whites made a mistake bringing in Giles and Smart.
“Since I am not in the management of Red Star, but I will be, I can reveal that, and it will be an honor for me to be part of such a project. As for Giles, if it were up to me, I wouldn’t have brought him.
Because if he didn’t fit in with Pablo Laso in Munich, one of the best European coaches, then he shouldn’t fit with us either. Just like Smart, who hasn’t shown anything so far,” Gurović emphasized.
