Milan: Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari rejoined his former Italian team Olimpia Milano on Tuesday, agreeing to play until the NBA lockout ends.
"I'm happy for the opportunity that Olimpia offered me to get back on the court with the team that I had some unforgettable experiences with," Gallinari said. "I hope to give the Milan fans more to cheer about and give them back in return the affection they showed by following me once I reached the NBA."
Olimpia's new coach is Sergio Scariolo, who guided Spain to the European Championship title on Sunday in Lithuania. Along with fellow NBA players Andrea Bargnani and Marco Belinelli, Gallinari was on the Italy squad that failed to advance to the second round.
