    According to various sources from Turkey and Israel, David Blatt will be the new coach of Turkish team Darussafaka Dogus, a club has already received a wild card in order to participate in next season’s Euroleague for a second consecutive year.

    The “Euroleague factor” has definitely played a part in Blatt’s decision, but it’s not the only reason that is sending him to Istanbul. Initially the Israeli/American coach was examining opportunities to work in the NBA. He was heavily rumored to be a candidate for the Houston Rockets and the New York Knicks but the Texan team struck a deal with Mike D’ Antoni, while the Knicks are finalizing a contract with Jeff Hornaceck.
