Sergio Scariolo, current head coach of Virtus Segafredo Bologna, spoke before the start of the playoffs and admitted that he met with the Toronto Raptors.
“I informed the company punctually about everything that was going on. The Raptors asked permission for this ‘interview,’ it was a good conversation with people I won a title with, they are almost friends. I think things were done properly, in the light of day. In the NBA nobody would ask this question. I was jokingly telling my players today that on the afternoon of the European Championship final I watched their practice live, sending corrections and observations live to the assistants, finishing half an hour before putting on my uniform and going to the game. The focus is 100 percent on this playoff and I feel a good connection with the team. Now is the time to have fun and play for something. The future? It’s not today, it’s tomorrow. About Madrid I am not telling you anything because there is nothing to tell.”
Let’s see what will happen in the career of Sergio Scariolo who wants to win a lot, maybe with the Toronto Raptors, and maybe at Virtus Bologna right now it is not possible at least at the EuroLega level.
