Eurobasket has posted that David Blatt signed a contract with the Turkish team.
The rumors regarding Efes Pilsen's new head coach has come to an end and the Turkish powerhouse finally signed with Benetton Treviso coach David Blatt for the upcoming season. Former Maccabi Tel-Aviv and Dynamo St. Petersburg coach put pen on paper for a lucrative 1+1 deal.
Of all the rumors that are circulating, this is the one I most hoped would come true. Our coaching is the weak link for this team. I believe that our young players are all going to come back better and I believe that we will add players who can help. But, Doc has not yet proved that he can coach a team to the playoffs and he hasn't proved that he can coach defense. Blatt would have helped immensely in both areas.
