Billy King in Istanbul for Worlds

47

Billy King said last week he was going on vacation but will be carrying his cell phone. It now appears to be a working vacation. He was spotted Saturday entering Abdi Ipekci Arena in Istanbul with USA Basketball President Jerry Colangelo. King has worked with USA Basketball since 1987 when he played for Team USA at the World University Games. No word on if he's scouting anyone while in Turkey. Team USA plays Slovenia at 9:30 a.m. ET Sunday.
