Ultimately, Tornike Shengelia decided to sign a new contract with Virtus until 2024 (with an option for the 2024/2025 season), despite some other interesting options available for him and his own desire for one more shot in the NBA. “During the summer I had my mind set also to go back to the NBA, and I had many other offers from several different clubs. Finally, I decided with my family to sign a new contract here with Virtus. Obviously, I already saw how the system and the team were working. I like the project, the coach, the players, and the city is amazing. These things combined together are enough for me to push me back to this decision”, he said.

As stated by the player in the Georgian Basketball Federation’s Instagram post, he was provoked to join the conflict. He also admitted that he had to control his emotions better.

Omer Onan: “Wherever you look it, there is nothing to hold onto. The non-playing player, Shengelia, and three people sitting on the bench went to the locker room. At the end of the match, the police were in front of our locker room. Supposedly they were protecting us but they pushed us all the time. We were going to hit each other with our fists”.
