A new name for Virtus

On the part of Virtus Bologna, the search for a wing to close out its roster continues. According to La Prealpina, the bianconero club is considering Daquan Jeffries, a 25-year-old American coming off a 2021/22 season in the G-League at the College Park Skyhawks but with NBA experience with the Kings, Rockets and Grizzlies.

The team coached by coach Sergio Scariolo last season saw the 2021 won scudetto slip away only in the playoff final, lost 4-2 to Olimpia Milano.

Although the Bologna-based team failed to sew the tricolor on its chest for the second consecutive time, it had finished the regular season in first place, just ahead of the meneghini.

The climax of the Vu Nere’s year, however, came on May 11, with the conquest of the Eurocup, won in the final against the Turkish Bursaspor. This success gave Scariolo’s men a pass for the 2022-23 Euroleague season, a competition in which the Bolognese have not participated for 14 years.
