NBA rumors: Italian team targeting Nicolo Melli

Olimpia Milano has made a great run this season in the EuroLeague, reaching the Final Four after a long hiatus and although the team fell in the semis to Barcelona in the final seconds, coach Ettore Messina keeps his eyes on the long-term project. The coach and his colleagues have had one addition in mind for a while and it seems as though the upcoming summer might be the one when a deal comes to fruition. According to Corriere della Sera, Messina would like to bring Nicolo Melli back to Europe and Italy. Milano is working on convincing Melli whose contract with the Dallas Mavericks expires later this summer.

My agent and I will think about the future after the season talking with Bamberg. NBA? It is a dream.
