China basketball coach Aleksandar Djordjevic sacked after failure to qualify for Olympics

China’s men’s basketball head coach Aleksandar Djordjevic has been dismissed, paying the price after the national team flopped at the World Cup and Asian Games and failed to reach the Paris Olympics.

The Chinese Basketball Association has launched the process of identifying its next boss after ending Djordjevic’s 18-month tenure on Thursday, with targets of qualifying for the 2027 World Cup as well as the next Olympics, in Los Angeles in 2028.

Guo Shiqiang, one of the four assistant coaches, will take on the head coach role temporarily.
