Sergio Scariolo: “the NBA is not ready to bet on a European coach”

Scariolo It has been a name on everyone’s lips this week. The Italian coach, who has been in Toronto forming part of the technical staff of Nick
Nurse, could end his time in the NBA to return to Europe.

This same week it was pointed out that the Virtus from Bologna had made a offer to Scariolo that he couldn’t refuse. After confirming the departure of Djordjevic, the Brescia coach was chosen to fill the bench.

Scariolo has never given indications of wanting to leave Toronto, the franchise with which he was proclaimed NBA champion just two years ago. However, the coach is clear that it will not be easy to see a European leading a team.

It is clear that the NBA is not ready to bet on a head coach who comes from Europe. It seems we have a roof. They have a lot of respect and consideration for us but there is a point where you can no longer move forward, “he said in a recent interview.

It would be strange if Scariolo made a decision about his future in the short term, more considering that in a few days the preparation of the Spanish National Team will begin ahead of the next Olympics.
