Daniele Baiesi is the manager that Ettore Messina would love to have as sports director of its AX Armani Exchange Milano, a source told Sportando.
It won’t be easy for Messina to lure Baiesi away from FC Bayern where he just extended the contract for two more years.
Baiesi began working for former Italian first division team and EuroCup participants Pallacanestro Biella in Piedmont, initially as team manager and head scout from 2005 to 2007, before a final two years as general manager and sports director.
From 2009 to December 2014, Baiesi was the Chief of International Scouting at NBA club, The Detroit Pistons, before he became sports director at Bamberg.
Claudio Crippa was the main target for Olimpia Milano but the Spurs scout decided to remain in San Antonio.
Roberto Brunamonti is the hot name for the team manager position.
