Gigi Datome of the Pistons is not having a lot of playing time in his rookie season in the NBA. But the captain of the Italian National Team is focused and committed in his new overseas adventure. Datome penned a two-year deal with the Pistons last summer after a season as MVP of Italian Serie A. "I won't give up" said Datome to Tuttosport. "When I had problems in my career, I've always found new motivations to grow" added Datome who confirmed that he will play with Italian National Team next summer. "I hope Italy will get a wild card for FIBA World Cup. The National Team has always been my priority. I will play either in the World Cup or Eurobasket QR". Sportando

“I think Daniel Hackett will stay in Siena all season”, said Scotti. The Italian-American guard will be a free agent in the summer of 2014 and he would like to take a shot in the NBA. As his agent confirmed: “There is interest for him from different NBA teams already”. That makes it really difficult for a European team to pay a buy out to Siena in order to get the player and then lose him at the end of the current season, because the NBA seems to be his priority at this point.
