Rick Pitino: “I would love to see Spanoulis join our National team”

Newly appointed Greece national team and Panathinaikos head coach Rick Pitino would love to see one of the biggest stars of Greek basketball the national team.

Pitino took to Twitter to say that he would love to have veteran Vassilis Spanoulis suiting up for Greece again.

The 39-year-old, along with his teammates at Olympiacos, have reportedly sent a letter to Greek basketball federation saying that they don’t want to play for the national team if it’s coached by Panathinaikos coach.

Pitino’s tweet is a clear indication that Spanoulis is wanted at the national team and could return should he decide so.
