Croatian head coach with Raps for a few weeks to add input

From D. Smith:

You read about Jasmin Repesa today, the Croatian national coach whos with the team for a couple of weeks observing and adding what he can whenever hes asked.

(If you havent had the chance yet, click here and you will).

Hes a really interesting dude with a lot of connections to the Raptors.

He and Maurizio go back more than a decade, to old Bologna-Benetton battles in the Italian league, he coached a 17-year-old Marco Belinelli in Bologna when the kid was just starting his career and he had Roko for a season at Roma, back in 07 when Toronto played over there.

Good guy, soft-spoken but wildly-respected in the game.

But hes certainly not the only guy whos been around watching.

Roy Rana, who now coaches Ryerson and coached Canadas cadet team in the summer, was here for a couple of days, saw Dave Smart of Carleton in the gym the afternoon, Leo was around for a couple of practices when things first got started.
