The Italian mastermind may return to Europe this summer for Milan

Ettore Messina was one of the first names mentioned as a candidate to kickstart a new era in Milan and as it turned out, the talks between the two sides have already started.

Eurohoops sources have confirmed that Messina is negotiating directly with the Armani family and it’s unclear at the moment in which capacity he may join the team.

However, it’s more than possible that even if he is involved in the basketball operations as part of the management, he will also be the head coach in case of an agreement between the two sides.

It has to be noted that Messina’s contract with the San Antonio Spurs is expiring this summer and that means that he is essentially a free agent. Meanwhile, Messina’s names is often mentioned as a candidate for job openings in the States, but so far he didn’t get the chance to be a head coach in the NBA.
