Despite having a contract for next season in Istrael with Hapoel Jerusalem, coach Simone Pianigiani emerged as the top target of EA7 Emporio Armani Milano.

According to “Gazzetta dello Sport” the Italian club has offered him a three-year deal and Milano expects him to leave Hapoel.

Despite the fact that Pianigiani was trying to build a project capable of entering the EuroLeague in Israel with a roster that includes Amar’e Stoudemire, the team didn’t meet expectations neither in the EuroCup or the Israeli league so far.

In Italy the experienced coach is considered an ideal solution, who knows very well the local players of Milano and he is chosen as the man who will be responsible for the new version of EA7 Milano. This version is also expected to include Alessandro Gentile who still has a contract with the club and was recently coached by Pianigiani in Hapoel.
