David Blatt and his new Turkish team to face Maccabi Tel Aviv

Maccabi Tel Aviv will host David Blatt and his new team Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul on October 4 in a pre-season game at Yad Eliyahu Arena.

Blatt will be returning to Yad Eliyahu for a game for the first time since he left Maccabi following the 2013/14 season in which it won the Euroleague title. He joined the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2014, but was sacked in January of this year despite guiding the team to the NBA Finals in 2014/15 and leading the East at the time of his firing.

The game between the new-look Maccabi, guided by coach Erez Edelstein, and Darussafaka will take place less than two weeks before the sides begin their Euroleague campaigns.
