Radio BRAND The coach confirmed in ‘T4’ that he has agreed everything with Toronto to renew with Spain
Sergio Scariolo, Spanish coach and assistant coach at the Toronto Raptors, attended Radio MARCA from Toronto where, gradually, his team returns to training, still individually, waiting to find out how the return of the NBA will be established.. The technician went through ‘T4’ and breathed relief because “in Toronto he has not hit as hard as in other points and that is to be happy”.
In the final hours, Orlando seems to be taking the lead to host the end of the NBA season, something to be decided on June 1, and where his team would have to defend the title. Beyond where, Scariolo worries about how to do it: “Being there for months is not an easy solution. It would be oppressive for everyone, but the NBA will find the best solutions. They have always been ahead of the rest of the sports world. We all have great confidence”.
Although the absence of the public may dampen the show, the coach is clear that, once the competition resumes, basketball will not change its style: “It is impossible to play basketball without contact. If we cautiously went for a rebound, it would be a coma for this sport. The protocols are going to reassure everyone and the players will block, block and crash without problems”.
Another important point in Scariolo’s future is the renewal as national coach. There is still no open negotiation with the Federation, but the technician is not concerned since, for his part, he has solved his problems: “Everyone has their problems and the Federation now has enough problems. I don’t want to rush anyone. I have been able to negotiate my conditions to continue in the club and now, when they have time and can do it, we will sit down to talk. What was in my hands, and it was not easy, I have been able to carry out with more speed than I think, but I cannot put my affairs before other emergencies of the Federation “.
This is how the day to day passes in the Raptors sessions: “A player can enter every hour, with a coach, so as not to cross anyone else and to use, strictly, the material that is made available”, and that is He does not yet have the entire squad at his command: “There are many missing and I am not sure that we will all be together here when we start. It is still more practical to get together in the place where we start to compete, but there are no concrete indications yet.”
What does not scare him, is the fact of playing behind closed doors: “You will have to adapt to new situations, but I am not very obsessed with hiding everything you do. Privacy lasts a game, until the rival makes you a good scouting and analyze all the details, “Scariolo concluded.
