Fenerbahce considers Erdem Can as the primary candidate to replace Igor Kokoskov if they find a buyout agreement with the Dallas Mavericks, according to BasketNews sources.

Erdem Can has been a part of the Fenerbahce coaching staff since 2015. He was considered for taking over head coaching duties last year, however, Kokoskov was selected instead.

After Zeljko Obradovic stepped down from Fenerbahce's head coaching position, he named Can as a person who would be a great fit to replace him. The 41-year-old is also considered a fan-favorite in Turkey.

While Erdem Can is Fenerbahce's main candidate, Ufuk Sarica and Orhun Ene are also among the candidates, per sources. Sarica is the current head coach of Pinar Karsiyaka. Meanwhile, Ene is the head coach of the Turkish National Team.
