He may have retired, but Dejan Bodiroga is not going far. A week after announcing the end of his playing career, Bodiroga has accepted the offer of his last club, Virtus Roma, to be its sports director for the next three years. Bodiroga, 34, was one of the defining world basketball players of his generation. He played his last two seasons in Rome after having won three Euroleague titles between 2000 and 2003 with Panathinikos and F.C. Barcelona. Roma announced the deal on Wednesday, saying that Bodiroga will work side-by-side with general manager Roberto Brunamonti at building a winning team for the future.
