Real Madrid Rumors
Michael Singer: Michael Malone, on Campazzo’s role: “Unlike all the other teams he’s been with in Argentina, in Real Madrid, he’s not going to have the ball in his hands for 40 minutes a night. That’s just not the makeup of our team.”
Campazzo had other NBA suitors. He had bigger roles awaiting him stateside, if he wanted them. But coming off their Western Conference Finals run, a baked-in appreciation for European playmakers and Pocius, Denver liked its chances. According to league sources, Campazzo made a significant financial commitment to aid his buyout from Real Madrid. From Denver’s perspective, it only showed how steadfast he was. The Nuggets eventually agreed to a two-year deal worth $6 million for Campazzo, a league source told The Post.
Facundo Campazzo: Like many of my future peers, playing in the NBA has been a lifelong dream. When I was a kid, me and my friends played like we were Jason Kidd, Steve Nash and Vince Carter and pretended we were in the league. To be honest, for much of my life I didn’t think actually playing in the NBA was a really attainable thing. It was only later on in my career, once I was with Real Madrid, that I even looked at it as a goal and maybe not a particularly realistic one.

Stefan Bondy: Reached out to Sergio Llull’s camp to see if a trade to Knicks might lure him out of Europe. The answer was Llull isn’t planning on making a statement on this subject. ….So I guess he didn’t say no.
