Facundo Campazzo Rumors
Facundo Campazzo: That said, it was not an easy process at all. I mean, the basketball part was easy because playing is what I enjoy doing. But when you’re not playing, your mind wanders whether you like it or not. I wanted to go to the NBA, but I had to play the earlier portion of the basketball season in Europe. So you’re kind of like competing and in free agency at the same time. Not ideal!
Facundo Campazzo: I’ve had a bunch of sleepless nights thinking, “Man, what if I get injured now and cannot go to the NBA when it’s at the tip of my fingers? How hard is it going to be to move to a new city in a new country? Will my family settle in and be OK?” Once the games started, that was not a thought anymore. But before and after? It was there all the time.
TJ McBride: Source: Facundo Campazzo is already in Denver and will most likely be taking part in the first day of training camp tomorrow. His deal is not technically completed, but the expectation is that his two-year deal with Denver will be announced tomorrow.
The news of Facu Campazzo’s move to the NBA only confirms that the growing bond between European teams and the NBA can significantly bolster the first financially, especially in such times of crisis. Campazzo’s $6M buy-out clause adds up to a total of $13M earnings for Real Madrid in the past six years, as they bid farewell to multiple players who took the leap to the NBA.
