The president of the Greek Basketball Federation, Giorgos Vassilakopoulos, confirmed the talks with Rick Pitino for the head coaching job.

“There have been a lot of talks, not only with Pitino but with other head coaches as well. I can’t add anything further at the moment, I am actually not allowed to comment on the matter,” Vassilakopoulos told the Greek website

If the two sides reach an agreement, then Pitino will initially take over Greece for the pre-Olympic Qualifying Tournament in June.
