Former 8th pick and the New York Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina could be back playing in Europe.

On Saturday, the head coach of Virtus Bologna, Sergio Scariolo, revealed that Nico Mannion will miss the beginning of the season and that the club is looking for a replacement.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport and La Repubblica, Ntilikina is one of the Virtus’ targets. However, reports say that the French point guard is not the first name on the Italian club list.

Gazzetta dello Sport also adds that Mannion’s rehab can take up to seven weeks. At the moment, it looks like Mannion will come back on the court only in November. 

Meanwhile, last season Ntilikina averaged 2.7 points and 0.9 rebounds in 33 games.

His best season was in 2019-20 when he averaged 6.3 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 3 assists.
