Slobodan "Piksi" Subotić (Serbian: ; Greek: Σλόμπονταν Σούμποτιτς; born August 15, 1956 in Herceg Novi, SR Montenegro, SFR Yugoslavia (now Montenegro))[1] is a retired professional basketball player. A 2.01 m talented swingman, his incredible shooting ability helped Aris Thessaloniki qualify for three Euroleague final fours between 1988 and 1990. Subotić followed a successful career as a coach. He also has Greek citizenship, which he obtained to circumvent EU administrative restrictions while playing and coaching there. To be able to get the citizenship he had to administratively change his name in the eyes of Greek law and is thus known there as Lefteris Subotić (Greek: Λευτέρης Σούμποτιτς).[1]

After his playing career, Subotic went into coaching. So far he's been the head coach of Iraklis Thessaloniki AEK Athens, Panathnaikos, Aris Thessaloniki, Olympiacos and KK Split and currently the head coach of Al Riyadi in the Lebanese Basketball League.
