Who did Blatt coach this season?
Darussafaka is a professional basketball club based in Istanbul, Turkey. David Blatt led the club to their first EuroCup title, notable on its own, but even more so considering he needed to rebuild the roster with 1/3 of the previous season’s budget.
Darussafaka went 8-2 in the Eurocup regular season, 5-1 in the Top 16 and was unbeaten in the playoffs, cultivating in an upset sweep of the previously unbeaten Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar.
