Sergio Llull RumorsAll NBA Players
One of the changes that are potentially coming to the squad is Facundo Campazzo leaving for the NBA, however, Llull noted that Facu is still his teammate and has been leaving all he’s got on the court. “Campazzo is still a Real Madrid player and I see him every day at practices and games and he is so committed to the team. He has not changed at all and gives his one hundred percent in every game and everybody can see it. That is what I can say about Facundo Campazzo.”
Speaking of Maccabi, their prospect in Deni Avdija will be up for grabs at the 2020 NBA Draft and is expected to be a lottery pick, as high as No.2. Llull, who never opted to join an NBA team despite lots of interest, especially by the Houston Rockets, praised Avdija and wished him all the best wherever he lands. “He is a great player, very big but skillful and able to do things which are not intended to be done by the guys of his size such as dribbling, passing… I wish him all the best wherever he plays,” Llull said.
Sergio Llull stated that he wants to continue with Real Madrid after his current contract expires next summer, occupying whatever position it may be, at a press conference Friday, as adapted by Arancha Rodriguez. “My intention is to continue, in whatever position they want. I am very calm, there is no rush. I am focused on having a good season and continue helping to win titles,” said Llull.
“We are in this bubble to avoid the risk of infections,” Real Madrid point guard Sergio Llull said. “It’s strange, and mentally it requires a big effort, but we’re going to do it so that everything goes well and people can enjoy basketball again from their homes.” The Spanish basketball league said the games in this final tournament will be broadcast in 125 countries, including the United States.
Andres Nocioni on Facundo Campazzo: “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.”
