Euroleague president Jordi Bartomeu paid tribute to Ivkovic: "It would not be unreasonable to say that 'Auntie' has influenced European basketball more than any coach ever. More than thanks to his achievements, Auntie will be remembered as a true leader for thousands of players and entire generations of coaches. "His strikers, but Ivkovic's legacy will continue to live where he led the game in Europe."
