Blatt to return to Europe, sign deal in Turkey

After failing to land a head coaching position in the NBA, David Blatt is returning to Europe.

The American-Israeli coach is on the verge of signing a deal with Turkish Euroleague club Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul that will earn him in the region of two million euros per season.

Blatt was offered to return to Maccabi Tel Aviv, which he guided to the Euroleague title before leaving for Cleveland in the summer of 2014. However, he quickly told the club that he has no intention of coming back to coach in Israel.
