Dimitris began his career in 1990 in KK Zagreb as a coach of the U-18 team, and later on, he was promoted to the senior team. Afterward, he left Croatia, returned to Greece to P.A.O.K. BC, and stayed there for almost two years. During his stay in Greece, he also coached Panionios B.C., Philippos Thessaloniki B.C., M.E.N.T. B.C., and Panathinaikos B.C.
However, in 2013, Dimitris left Greece and moved on to the Turkish club Bandırma B.İ.K. Yet, his journey in Turkey did not last long. His coaching career soon continued in CSKA Moscow, where he won every possible trophy.
Among his most notable achievements are two times EuroLeague champion, two times EuroLeague coach of the Year, six times VTB United League champion, four times VTB United League Coach of the Year, five times Gomelsky Cup champion, and VTB United League Supercup champion.
