Slaven Rimac (born December 19, 1974) is a retired Croatian professional basketball player and current coach. He was a member of the Croatian National Team in 1996 Olympic Games and 1997 Eurobasket. He led the 1996-97 Euroleague in free throws shooting % (93.1%).
On November 14, 2013, he was named a new head coach of Cibona Zagreb, after departure of Neven Spahija. He led Cibona to the ABA League championship, despite huge financial problems the club was facing. As a champion of the league, Cibona had direct spot in the Euroleague, but withdrew from it in order to stabilize financially. Eventually, Crvena zvezda, as third in the standings, took its spot in the Euroleague.
