Obradovic spent the last four years as head coach of ALBA Berlin and guided the the club to the eighthfinals of 7DAYS Eurocup, a third-place German League finish, and the German Cup title last season. That was one of three Cups that ALBA won under Obradovic. During his reign in Berlin, he also led ALBA to a Turkish Airline EuroLeague appearance in 2014-15 campaign. Obradovic has five EuroCup seasons under his belt, a pair with ALBA and one each with BC Donetsk of Ukraine, PGE Turow of Poland and Koeln 99ers of Germany, and has a 42-28 record in the competition. Obradovic also has three EuroLeague seasons behind, two with ALBA and one with Koeln. Obradovic is expected to make his debut on Lokomotiv's bench in Round 6 of the EuroCup Regular Season this Wednesday when Lokomotiv hosts Union Olimpija Ljubljana. Lokomotiv is currently on a three-game losing streak and going into that game team sits in fourth place in Group D with a 1-3 record.
