After a complete organizational shake-up that included a planned switch to a new coach, veteran bench boss Zeljko Pavlicevic is in discussions with Wakayama Trians ownership to return to lead the team for the 2014-15 season, The Japan Times has learned.

The cash-strapped Trians, who are under new ownership, had planned to sever ties with Pavlicevic, a two-time Euroleague winning coach, after last season. At a hastily arranged June 11 news conference in Wakayama, team officials, including Ken Okamoto, the new president, and Yosuke Kondo, the new acting owner, said a coaching change was a priority.
