Meanwhile, Milan suffered its fourth consecutive loss and dropped to 6-14, meaning that the Italian team has the joint-worst record in the EuroLeague standings.

Emporio Armani head coach Ettore Messina no longer believes in the possibility of saving the 2022-23 EuroLeague season.

"We're done. It's really hard now trying to turn this situation around, we need to be honest and admit it," he said after the Friday defeat.

The basketball professor also said that the team is not expected to sign new players.

"Let's leave the transfer market alone, the question is closed," Messina was straightforward.

Milan is currently 5 wins behind Maccabi and Baskonia, which are in the playoffs zone.

EuroLeague clubs have 14 games left to play before the end of the regular season.
