Olimpia Milano Rumors

The Federation asked of Sachetti to change his assistants and, while reluctant, he had to oblige. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Federation wants Ettore Messina as the next coach and the sides have a verbal agreement with the coach being able to refuse the position if his obligations in Olimpia Milano end up being too much to balance with.
Former NBA big man Luis Scola, who spent the 2019/20 season playing for Olimpia Milano, announced on Thursday that he won’t be returning to the Italian club – or any other EuroLeague team – for the ’20/21 campaign. Scola added in a statement that he’ll decide within the next few weeks whether or not to continue his playing career. “I have chosen not to play in the EuroLeague anymore, neither in Milan nor with another team,” Scola said. “I want to thank Olimpia for giving me this opportunity, it was a fun year in which I experienced a good environment where I felt right at home. “On the other hand, I have not decided whether to retire from basketball for good or keep playing in another competition. I’ll make a final decision during the next few weeks.”

Olimpia Milano coach Ettore Messina, the former right-hand man for Gregg Popovich in San Antonio, applauded Italy’s efforts to combat the rapid spread of the virus. The country’s updated case numbers are second only to China, where the outbreak began late last fall. The Italian government on Monday restricted movement of all residents, with the prime minister Giuseppe Conte saying “there is no more time” for anything other than full quarantines around the country.“Tough situation,” Messina says, “but (Italy) and Milan are very disciplined. We’ve been hit hard. Unfortunately we are ahead of other countries who are facing now what we faced two weeks ago. Let’s pray and hope for the best.”

Olimpia Milano coach Ettore Messina was asked to comment on Kobe Bryant following the latter’s death. Messina was a part of the Lakers coaching staff as consultant in 2011-2012. “You don’t coach Kobe Bryant. You stay in the gym with Kobe Bryant.
