The Dallas Mavericks plan to hire former NBA swingman Marko Milic to join the coaching staff in player development, according to Marc Stein.

Milic, who was the NBA's first Slovenian player, has obvious ties to Mavs' Slovenian wunderkind Luka Doncic. They are just two of 13 players from Slovenia to play in the NBA.

Milic headed back to Europe after his tenure in the NBA. His represented teams in Old Continent include Real Madrid, Fenerbahce, Fortitudo Bologna, Virtus Bologna, and Union Olimpija.
