EA7 Milan pens young gun Fontecchio
EA7 Emporio Armani Milan has added one of the top young players in Italy, forward Simone Fontecchio, for the coming Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season, the club announced Friday. Fontecchio (2.03 meters, 20 years old) arrives from Virtus Bologna, for whom he averaged 9.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in 30 games last season. He was named the Italian League’s best young player after the 2014-15 season, as well. Fontecchio debuted for Bologna's senior team when he was still 16 years old and has seen his role grow in each of the past four seasons. He also led Bologna’s youth teams to titles at the Under-17 and U19 levels and has represented Italy at the U16, U18 and U20 levels.
