After John Hammond of the Bucks and Bryan Colangelo of the Raptors, Danny Ainge was the third NBA manager to travel to Rome to scout Gigi Datome.
The President of the Boston Celtics attended the Serie A game between Virtus Roma and Sidigas Avellino won by the guest 81-75 after one overtime.
Gigi Datome has played 38 minutes scoring 14 points with 7 rebounds and 3 assist but shooting with 27.3% from two points (3/11) and 25% from the arc (2/8).
Danny Ainge is travelling around Europe to scout the most important players from the Old Continent. The Celtics President has been in Croatia to watch Dario Saric and in Greece to scout the new phenomenon Giannis Adetokunbo.
Gigi Datome is the notebook of a lot of NBA teams. The forward of the Italian National Team has one more year on the contract with Virtus Rome but he also has a gentlemen agreement with the owner of the team, Claudio Toti, in case of a call from the NBA next summer.
