44-year-old coach began his career on the bench as an assistant coach in the 2016-17 season at FC Barcelona B team and with his country's national team, where he has had great successes such as the Gold medal won at the 2017 Eurobasket.

Lakovic was an assistant at Bilbao Basket (2017-18), where he also led four games as head coach, and at Joventut Badalona (2018-19) before joining Ulm as head coach in the summer of 2019.
