Does this name ring any bells for you? Yes, David did play of CSKA Moscow last season – well, until he got injured and Oscar Torres (now with UPIM Bologna) replaced him. What is going on with David? Has he signed somewhere we just don’t know? Well, Ettore Messina explains what David is up to.
I exchange e-mails with him very often. He’s doing very well and does not think about returning to the basketball court yet. Even though he has some good offers from Italy including a very good one from Benetton Treviso which is struggling and needs some leadership on the point guard position. I think he is very happy now to stay with his family, do some other business and recover from his injury. Honestly, I am not sure if he will get back to playing basketball. He will be an excellent coach, I think. I am sure he will have an opportunity to start coaching career as an assistant in some good college or NBA team. He has some good connections there and he is a highly respected person.
Don’t you want to be David Vanterpool right now? One of the best coaches in Europe, if not the best, tells you, you would be an excellent coach?
