Sutor Montegranaro Rumors
JaJuan Johnson is close to signing in Italy with Giorgio Tesi Pistoia according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. The big man is drawing interest from another Italian team, Sutor Montegranaro, but Pistoia is the front runner to sign him.
Emiliano Carchia: Yesterday, Fabi, sponsor of Sutor Montegranaro met Andrea Bargnani and his agent, as for Siena (who made a try with him) biggest hurdle is the insurance. Il Mago wants to cover the entire contract with Toronto ($43M). Fabi offered $800.000 per six weeks. It is very unlikely that Bargnani will play somewhere in the first part of the season.
Fabi’s family, main sponsor of Sutor Montegranaro, will meet today in Milano Andrea Bargnani and his agent Toto Ricciotti. The sponsor is ready to offer a six-week contract to Bargnani worth $800.000 before taxes, insurance included.
But also Montepaschi Siena and Virtus Roma are still dreaming Andrea Bargnani. “Bargnani is an important player. We don’t make plans on players with escape. Our coach Simone Pianigiani talked with him but we could not find a solution good for all of us” said Minucci.
