Default Virtus Roma needs sponsor dollars to sign Bargnani

Quote:
Toronto Raptors big man Andrea Bargnani is a native of Rome and may soon be playing professional ball there. Virtus Roma owner Claudio Toti tells Il Messaggero that the team has been talking to Bargnani about having him come play there, according to Sportando.

"In my opinion, if he decides to play in Italy, he will sign just with us," Toti said, Sportando reports. "Even if we had agreed on the salary, the biggest hurdle is the insurance to cover his contract with Toronto Raptors." Toti said he is waiting to find out exactly how much insurance will cost and that he will need sponsors to help pay for it: "I want him not to sell jerseys or more tickets," Toti said. "I want him for winning games."

The 25-year-old Bargnani averaged 21.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game last season for Toronto.

that's cool. I hope that lots of our guys end up playing in Europe if there's no season over here.

Especially our young guys. Not that Bargnani counts as one of those anymore, but still keep the developement coming...y'know.

I can't for the life of me, understand why someone would wish this kind of ill-will on another human being, let alone one of our players.
