Blatt confirmed: Bagackis go to Maccabi
Darushafaka coach David Blatt confirmed that his first assistant Ainars Bagackis takes over Maccabi. “Israeli pride” remained without a coach last week after the debacle of Red Star Belgrade, and in the meantime, Maccabi suffered another defeat by CSKA Moscow.
“Not yet signed the contract, but something’s coming. I am happy that the people who have helped me continue to work further, I am proud of it. I know how important is for a coach to get a real career opportunity. I wish him luck in Maccabi, “said Blatt.
Interestingly, Maccabi Friday in 14.kolo Euroleague will be on tour in Darushafaka and then probably will be signed a contract. Bagackis alone through career led Zalgiris, Jenisej, Nizhny Novgorod and Budiveljnik.
