Now the official has arrived: Corey Davis Jr. will continue to play red and white as well for next season. Through a press release, Allianz Pallacanestro Trieste announced that he has reached an agreement with his 1997-born Lafayette teammate, who will therefore be part of the roster available to coach Marco Legovich and his crew.
“We have been cautious in the statements of the past few days – comment Mario Gayashi – But I do not deny that this contract renewal was certainly satisfactory for both parties. A little anecdote about the negotiations: I never had a contract returned from the US less than an hour after it was sent. Corey has never hidden his desire to stay in Trieste, the city that welcomed him in the best possible way and gave him the chance to show off on an important sporting stage. We are also happy to be able to confirm this: last season he did well and above all showed that he cares about the fate of the team, showing leadership skills that were essential in a complex moment. He is not afraid to take on many responsibilities and we are very happy that he is still our manager.”
With over 11 points per game in the last tournament, Corey Davis proved to be one of the team’s offensive stops, shooting 50% from 2 points and over 30% from 3 points. But what is not shown in the statistics is his precise defensive stage capable of making the difference in limiting the opponent’s play, as coach Marko Legovic also remembers him:
“I am so happy to be able to hug Corey again next season – lyrics coach legovic His great desire to return to Trieste, in this team, made the difference in these negotiations. Technically, we know him well and already know the impact he can have on the team in terms of character and game. He is a player capable of an excellent defensive stage, but also able to withstand the weight of attack at crucial moments, a captain. I’ve talked to him a lot in recent days: He accepted with great enthusiasm the technical proposal we made to him For next year and frankly I can’t wait to be in Trieste to start the preparations.”
