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 Sport24.gr.

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