The Warriors’ game against the Mavericks on Friday was postponed following the shocking death of assistant coach Dejan Milojevic in Salt Lake City.

The Golden State Warriors’ game against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday was postponed following the death of their assistant coach Dejan Milojevic.

Milojevic died Wednesday in Utah after suffering a heart attack Tuesday night while having dinner with his fellow Warriors coaches and some players.

The incident occurred at Valter’s Osteria, a popular Italian restaurant frequented by NBA teams.

The 46-year-old was part of the squad that helped the Warriors win the 2022 NBA Championship.

The Warriors were scheduled to play the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night, but the game was postponed by the NBA.

The Golden State Warriors’ game against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday was postponed following the death of their assistant coach Dejan Milojevic.

And now they’ve had their second game canceled this week, with Friday’s game against Dallas postponed, according to NBA insider Shams Charania.

«We are absolutely devastated by the sudden passing of Dejan,» coach Steve Kerr said in a statement released by the team.

«This is a shocking and tragic blow for everyone associated with the Warriors and an incredibly difficult time for his family, friends and all of us who have had the incredible pleasure of working with him.»

Milojevic’s death sparked a massive and immediate outpouring of sympathy from the basketball community, and moments of silence were held Wednesday before NBA games.

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called the news «scary.»

Atlanta forward Bogdan Bogdanovic — a Serb, like Milojevic — politely declined comment Wednesday before the Hawks game, saying, “I’m sorry. I can’t talk about it now. I feel so bad,” he tapped his chest.

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich raved about how good a coach Milojevic was.

«You changed my life in such a short time,» Warriors rookie Brandin Podziemski wrote on social media.

“The most important thing you ever told me was to just smile! Your joy and laughter will be forever missed. Shine down upon us from heaven.’

Milojevic was in his third season with the Warriors.

He previously coached in Serbia – where he mentored two-time NBA MVP Nikola Jokic – along with Montenegro, and was an assistant coach for the Serbian national team alongside current Atlanta assistant Igor Koskoskov.
