If he decides to leave the NBA, Nicolo Melli will have an opportunity to go back to Italy and Olimpia Milano as Ettore Messina is quite interested in adding him to the squad

Olimpia Milano has made a great run this season in the EuroLeague, reaching the Final Four after a long hiatus and although the team fell in the semis to Barcelona in the final seconds, coach Ettore Messina keeps his eyes on the long-term project.

The coach and his colleagues have had one addition in mind for a while and it seems as though the upcoming summer might be the one when a deal comes to fruition.

According to Corriere della Sera, Messina would like to bring Nicolo Melli back to Europe and Italy. Milano is working on convincing Melli whose contract with the Dallas Mavericks expires later this summer.

Melli played in Milano for five years early on in his career (2010-15) and his last stint in European basketball was with Fenerbahce. In the NBA, he spent a season and a half with the New Orleans Pelicans before joining the Mavs in March.
