Belinelli has worked several years with Messina in San Antonio.
“Will I follow Messina in Milano? Maybe in a few years. I am happy in USA, I have one year remaining with the Spurs and then I will be a free agent. I would love to sign one more contract in the NBA. But we’ll see. I have always had a strong relationship with Messina. I am sorry he won’t be with us anymore but I am happy he will have again the chance to be the true Ettore Messina. A commander. He will try to do his best and try to win the EuroLeague title” Belinelli said.
