In a philosophical interview with il Fatto Quotidiano, an Italian newspaper, Andrea Bargnani said that he turned down other, higher paying jobs in the NBA because he has something to prove with the Nets. “I would have done it for free because the money at this time does not matter,” said Bargnani who’s made $72 millin in his NBA career … and who’s made some profitable investments in Italy. After two years with the Knicks –and what he has called “crazy bad luck” — Bargnani said he wanted to start over … in New York. He said he wants to forget the injuries that limited him to 71 games in two years.

Bargnani, the 27-year-old seven-footer, signed with the Nets on Friday and said he couldn’t talk about specifics regarding his choice until Saturday. The contract is a two-year vets minimum deal with a player option in the second year, but Bargnani said he sees the Nets as a long-term home. According to a machine translation, Bargnani said he’s ready for a change, ready to relaunch his career. “I’m very focused. I want to play a season without the constant stop and start..I intend in coming years to be an important player within the structure of the Nets and a player on whom my teammates can count on in any situation.”
