Benetton Basket announced Thursday that veteran guard Massimo Bulleri returns to his boyhood club on a two-year deal and has been named the 10th captain in Benetton history. Bulleri (188, 32) begins his third stint at Benetton, where he first made a name for himself as one of the club's stars in the early part of the millennium. He spent most of the last five seasons with Armani Jeans Milano, spare brief periods on loan at Virtus Bologna and again with Benetton at the end of the 2008-09 season, when he helped the club reach the Eurocup Final Eight. Last year Bulleri averaged 8.4 points off the bench in the Euroleague and 7.8 points and 2 assists in the Italian League, helping Milano reach the playoff finals.
