Mike James responded to his followers on Twitter following recent rumours that Olimpia Milan are going to part ways with him.

The 28-year-old American stated that Ettore Messina, Milan’s new coach, told him twice that he is going to play an important role on the team.

However, recently rumours appeared that the team is finalising deal with Shelvin Mack who will take James’ place on the team.

Furthermore, Maccabi Tel-Aviv are already showing interest in bringing Olimpia’s leader should he eventually leave Milan.

As it turns out, James is not aware of the club’s plans to part ways with him. Not only that but he also helped bring Sergio Rodriguez and Aaron White to the team.
