Golden State coach Steve Kerr will miss Monday’s game at Utah after attending the funeral of Warriors assistant coach Dejan Milojevic in Belgrade, Serbia.
Kenny Atkinson will serve as interim coach against the Jazz.
Warriors assistants Chris DeMarco and Ron Adams, general manager Mike Dunleavy Jr., trainer Rick Celebrini and team consultant Zaza Pachulia also attended the services, per ESPN.
Milojevic, 46, died on Jan. 17 after suffering a heart attack during a private team dinner in Salt Lake City.
Milojevic played professionally overseas for 14 years and was named the Adriatic League’s Most Valuable Player three times (2004-06). He joined the Warriors’ coaching staff in August 2021 and helped them win an NBA championship in 2021-22.
