    Default Olimpia Milano 2019-20

    Some news from Milan. Rich offer for Derrick Williams, let’s hope, it would be finally a strong PF in Milan. Nunnally probably out, Michael Roll is close, could have his place in rotation as sg/sf. Could be:
    James - X - Cinciarini
    Nedovic - Della Valle - Moraschini
    Micov - X (Roll?)
    X (Williams??) - Brooks
    Gudaitis - Tarczewski - Biligha/Burns

    First X should be Chacho

    Not Williams but Aaron White at the end. Sergio Rodriguez and Michael Roll are deal done.

    Burns is not disqualified but also Biligha seems to be very close

    So now it looks like

    James - Rodriguez - Cinciarini
    Nedovic - Della Valle - Moraschini
    Micov - Roll
    White - Brooks - Burns
    Tarczewski - Gudaitis - (Biligha)

    Rodriguez, Roll to be announced soon. Biligha 80%.

    Let’s see if the roster is over

    Terrible decision by Milan. Cutting Mike James and signing Shelvin Mack. Mack is a good player but James is way better. For another year I can’t see Milan in the F8. Mack-Rodriguez, Nedovic-Roll-Micov, White-Brooks-Tarczewski-Gudaitis + Italian guys (Cinciarini, Della Valle, Burns etc)

    So out James, Nunnally, Kuzminskas...in Mack, Roll, A.White. Offensively there is an enormous downgrade and decrease of talent. Probably it is un upgrade defensively but overall team is not better. At least the coach is really a great improvement from Pianigiani

    why don't you count Rodriguez in? I also like crazy explosive scorers like James, but I think you are better off overall.

    I mean, yes, he is terrible in some aspects of the NBA game, but I think he can dominate in EL if he has the right mind-set. he's 29 only. this is a great signing for Bayern.
    Yes I forgot rodriguez for jerrells so:
    Out James, Jerrells, Nunnally, Kuzminskas
    In Mack, Rodriguez, Roll, White.

    Like I said earlier, Milano is making careful calculated moves this year. Great decision to get rid of James, I pity the team which will pick him up.

    I don't agree. First all of after Ser-Rod transfer, Mike James should leave. They dont fit well together. Mack is better complement for Ser-Rod.

    Talent wise, arguable, outs are better. But I believe players added are better for team chemistry.
    in my opinion Milan needs an athletic 3D SF.

    So Mack and Rodriguez announced.
    James officially part ways with Milano.

    Mack - Nedovic - Micov - White - Gudaitis.
    Chacho - Della Valle - Roll - Brooks - Tarczewski.
    Cinciarini - Moraschini - Burns - Biligha.

    If Nedovic will manage to stay healthy most of the season and Gudaitis is going to reach last year level after few games, this team can reach playoffs, with also the potential to reach 6th place. But at the moment Nedovic and Gudaitis are two question marks. So I expect to fight for the playoff like 2018/19 season
