Ettore Messina Rumors
Messina explained that his obligations with the Spurs leave him very little time for the national team and this will not change, as a new two year contract is ready for him in San Antonio: “I am very pleased. You feel it right away if there’s something bad in the air and instead in San Antonio they made me feel wanted. They waited for the right moment and now there is a new contract that awaits and I must sign it. ”
Those who know Messina say he’d more likely gravitate toward a team with a veteran roster, but given the breadth of his portfolio, any team looking for a serious, dedicated leader might very well have Messina on its target list.
As Messina says: “Nowadays Teodosic is a far different player from who he was three years ago, and even more different, than six years ago… He is a more mature, a player who has finally won the Euroleague. He has improved himself it’s out of discussion that offensively he is read. The concerns are about his defense but he is a smart player and he knows how to avoid trouble. My opinion is that he could easily play at the NBA level, it’s up to him… Obviously, at least at the beginning, he won’t make the big money he is used to get in Europe but speaking in terms of talent, there is no doubt that he could compete at a high level”.
