James Andrisevic named new Hiroshima Dragonflies (Japan) coach 

Jamie Andrisevic , who served as an assistant coach for the Kyoto Hannaryz last season, has been hired as the new bench boss of the Hiroshima Dragonflies, the B. League second-division squad announced Friday. Andrisevic, 35, replaces Sako Kenichi , who guided the club from its inception in 2014 through this past season. The Dragonflies went 46-14 in the inaugural B. League campaign. Andrisevic, a former Arizona State post player, worked as an assistant and associated head coach for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the NBA Development League (now known as the NBA G League) from 2013-16. ‘James was integral to the success we had in Santa Cruz,’ Casey Hill, Santa Cruz’s head coach from 2013-17, told The Japan Times on Wednesday. ‘He helped us create the culture we needed to be successful both in competition and development.’
