UNICS Kazan agreed to terms with Velimir Perasovic, reported. The 56-year-old took last year off from basketball. He last coached TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz in 2019-20.

In his nine-year career, the Croatian specialist also coached KK Cibona, Anadolu Efes Istanbul, and Valencia Basket. 

Winning the EuroCup in 2014 is considered the biggest victory of his coaching career. In 2015, he coached the Croatian National Team.

Last season, UNICS competed in the EuroCup finals, and they lost to AS Monaco Basket. However, making it to the finals helped them snatch a ticket to next season's EuroLeague anyway.
