Former NBA player and Euroleague legend Andres Nocioni talks with AS.com about the possibility that Facundo Campazzo decides to leave Real Madrid to start his NBA career.
“I think that Real Madrid will have to listen to offers from NBA teams this summer. On behalf of his agent, Claudio Villanueva, or some club that wants him, I think that some team is going to try to turn the situation around and bring him to the NBA, that’s the reality. It also seems to me that Madrid is going to have to understand that it is going to be a move that he is going to try to make at some point. It is not easy for the players to make a great decision like Sergio Llull did, not everyone has that mentality of staying in Europe as Sergio has done. Facundo always saw the NBA as a possibility, since he was very young. He is not going to push it, but circumstances are going to make him consider the possibility”
This year before the suspension Campazzo was averaging 9.9 points, 7.1 assist and 1.4 steals in Euroleague.
The Argentine point guard has a contract until 2024 with Real Madrid with an expensive escape from about 6 million euros, AS.com reports.
