Sergio Scariolo Rumors
Without having fully committed as yet, Pau Gasol is warming to the idea of joining Sergio Scariolo’s team and taking part in EuroBasket 2015. Before makes up his mind, certain details need to be sorted out, but his decision may well be announced this Wednesday in Madrid.
The Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) is very upbeat on the likelihood of having this star player in the team. So optimistic are they that if in the end he decides to give it a miss, it would be seen as a terrible blow. Scariolo met with Pau last week and both were satisfied with what was said.
Sergio Scariolo was presented today by the Spanish federation as the new national team coach, however the Italian can end also in the NBA. As Eurohoops can confirm there’s interest for the experienced coach also from an NBA franchise in order to be an assistant.
Italian coach Sergio Scariolo will take over Spain’s national basketball team for a second stint. Scariolo coached Spain to the Olympic silver medal in 2012 when it lost to the United States in the final. He also led Spain to two European championships in 2009 and 2011 in his first stint as coach from 2009-12.
