The 2022-23 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season did not go the way EA7 Emporio Armani Milan planned, so the Italian champs are back with a revamped roster that boasts the type of experience and talent needed to go all the way. Coach Ettore Messina's job will involve making the new pieces fit as soon as possible so that Milan gets off to a strong start. The club has brought in some interesting new names to the roster and among them, one stands out: 2021-22 EuroLeague MVP Nikola Mirotic.
In the backcourt, Milan has kept most of its engine. Kevin Pangos will enter his second season with the team, hoping to leave the injuries that slowed him last year in the past. He will be backed by sharpshooter Billy Baron, who averaged 11.0 points in his maiden season in Milan, Devon Hall, who will play his third straight season with the team hoping to boost his numbers to the ones he had in his first, and Stefano Tonut, an experienced Italian guard who made his Milan debut last season.
One of the newcomers in the backcourt is Maodo Lo, a player with seven EuroLeague seasons under his belt with German teams and who will have his first European experience outside that country. Other newcomers to the Milan backcourt include Diego Flaccadori and Giordano Bortolani. Flaccadori brings in five seasons of EuroCup experience plus two more in the EuroLeague with FC Bayern Munich, and he will be expected to provide depth to the Milan rotation. Bortolani is a young addition who will take on a reserve role. He played in the EuroCup with Germani Brescia in 2020-21.
