Rick Pitino To Continue Coaching Greece At Olympic Qualifying Tournament 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Oct 31, 2020 6:44 pm

Rick Pitino will coach Greece at the Olympic qualifying tournament, Pitino told Marc Stein of The New York Times.


Pitino, currently the coach of Iona, was named the head coach of Greece last year.


The Olympic qualifying tournament between 16 countries will be held from June 29th to July 4th.


The NBA is currently pushing for a December 22nd start date to finish the season before the Olympics.


The league reportedly estimates "significant financial turmoil" should the season compete with the Olympics for television ratings.

And if the Greek Freak joins the squad what does this mean for the Yanks' chances? Guessing Silver will read this and press Roberts to whisper in LBJ an' 'nems ears
