In an interview with Corriere dello Sport-Stadio, Petteri Kopone talked about his future saying that he is ready to stay with Virtus Bologna if the club will qualify for the next Euroleague season.
"To stay with Virtus? Why not? My goal is to play in Euroleague because I think for me it is important to play at the highest European level. And if I can play in Euroleague with Virtus Bologna, anyone would be happier than me. I don't know what is going to happen from now to June. NBA or Euroleague? It is not clear to me as well. If Virtus Bologna plays in Euroleague, I know I would have an important role in the team. Dallas Mavericks? I spoke with them a couple of time, they told me to finish the season with Virtus" said Koponen, via BolognaBasket.
