Illawarra has made a decisive move.
The Illawarra Hawks of the National Basketball League (NBL) announced on Thursday that they have mutually decided to part ways with head coach Jacob Zekomas.
Illawarra was in the midst of a two-win, seven-loss slump in its opening nine games. With a winning percentage of 22.2%, they are currently at the bottom of the 10-team table. Their average goal differential is -10.8 points, which is also the worst in the league.
The Illawarra have made a decision.
In an official statement, Illawarra head coach Matt Campbell said, “This was not a decision we took lightly. On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank Coach Zekomas for his efforts.”
The Illawarra suffered through a rash of injuries last season, finishing with a record of 3 wins and 25 losses. This season, however, the team showed no signs of rebounding, and after the first nine games of the season, the team was forced to fire its head coach early. 토토사이트
Illawarra will be coached by Justin Tatum for the remainder of the season. Justin Tatum is the father of current NBA superstar Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics.
Ilawara’s firing of Zekomas will also have a significant impact on Lee Hyun-jung’s future.
Since the start of the season, Lee has mostly come off the bench, and his playing time has been erratic. This could be a significant turning point for him as he looks for a more consistent and reliable opportunity.
