Nicolo Melli was one of the standouts of last season as a member of Brose Bamberg and one of the most wanted free agents around Europe.

With the NBA and the Atlanta Hawks being interested in him, he decided to stay in Europe and join the EuroLeague champs Fenerbahce.

The Italian forward spoke about his decision to Eurohoops, about the Italian national team and also about the new challenge in his career and his upcoming season with the defending champs. “We have to be motivated more than anyone else”, it’s his motto and it remains to be seen how it will be proven on the court.
