Sergio Scariolo decided to address the rumors circling around, since his team secured a spot in Euroleague, that he won’t be able to lead both Segafredo Virtus Bologna and Spain simultaneously, especially during the national team windows. However, the coach clearly stated that his contract with Virtus allows him to coach Spain and he will be continuing on both benches. “I don’t know where certain gossip comes from, and I don’t usually comment on gossip but anyway, and even for once, it’s worth clarifying that: My contract with Virtus explicitly provides in writing that I can participate in the windows of the national team. And my contract with the Spanish Basketball Federation does not foresee any type of exit and that contract extends until the end of the 2024 Olympic Games,” Scariolo said and took Igor Kokoskov as an example of how doable it actually is if all sides commit.

NBA star Miles Bridges was arrested for felony domestic violence in Los Angeles on Wednesday, TMZ Sports has learned. The 24-year-old forward — who most recently played for the Charlotte Hornets — turned himself in to a local jail regarding an alleged physical altercation that happened on Tuesday.
Law enforcement sources tell us a woman claims she was in an argument with Bridges that turned physical. We’re told police were called to the scene, but Bridges was gone by the time cops arrived. We’re told the woman required medical attention.
“When Kyrie announced he was opting in, I was like ‘okay, we can move on. This won’t be a thing,’ said Windhorst. “But that’s not what my phone was telling me. That’s not what the executives were telling me. That’s not what the agents were telling me. They are saying this ain’t over, because the Nets made it clear to everybody they did not want the status quo. If nothing else changed, they were not going to be happy. They were not sure if that this satisfied that situation.
