Maccabi coach Giannis Sfairopoulos was happy with his squad’s performance post-game while he also commented about the all but done departure of Elijah Bryant – who was watching the game from the sidelines – to the Milwaukee Bucks. “He was an important part of our rotation, an important player. He had this offer. We are sad that he left on one hand, but on the other hand, it is his future and that is life in basketball. If I agreed? Every coach wants to see his players develop and grow, improve their game. Maccabi helped him reach the highest goal of an American basketball player, I’m happy for him. Shocked the team? I do not believe so. I hope Elijah likes Giannis Antetokounmpo more than he liked Giannis Sfairopoulos,” the coach said, per Sport 5.

Spoelstra has accepted an invitation to join the USA Basketball coaching staff for its Olympic preparations in Las Vegas next month. The Miami Heat coach, who went head-to-head against Popovich and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals, will be involved coaching the U.S. select team — a group of players that will be brought in to practice and scrimmage against the Olympic roster.
“I really just want to be a part of the program,” Spoelstra said. “I’m always pushing myself to get better in the offseasons; I go visit people and all that stuff. This is going to be a basketball immersion. I mean, the dinners, the team meetings … for where I am right now in my career, I think this is the perfect thing for a summer of development.”
