In an interview released to Jot Down, Ettore Messina talked about his future, still between NBA and Europe. Messina spent the season in NBA with the Lakers as special assistant coach of Mike Brown.
"Mitch Kupchak called me telling me: 'I've heard just great things on you and I've seen you at work. We would love to have you back with us next season'. It was a big pleasure for me. But I haven't decided yet. I have good offers from Europe and United States. I am evaluating all the proposals. When I signed in the NBA, I thought that my name would be forgotten, but this is not the case. I have never had so many offers as this season" said Ettore Messina.
