Argentine point guard Facundo Campazzo, who played for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks this year, will play for Red Star Serbia after reaching an agreement to sign a $1,800,000 contract for the remainder of this season, $2,500. 000 for the next one and a chance to break the link at the end of this campaign.
According to the sports daily Marca, Campazzo will be officially announced in the next few hours by the team from the city of Belgrade, where Argentine playmaker Luca Vildoza also plays, given that Real Madrid has decided not to match the Serbian team’s offer.
On November 28, Campazzo was released by the Mavericks for being ignored by head coach Jason Kidd, and was not claimed by another NBA franchise within the stipulated time frame, thus becoming a free agent and having a chance to look for a new destination.
Eyes on Europe, given that his rights belong to Real Madrid. The Spanish side could match any offer made by a European club based in Córdoba to have him in the squad, but the squad will not match the one made by Red Star.
Red Star will thus be the third home in Europe for Campazzo, who started from Peñarol de Mar del Plata, joined Real Madrid in 2014, loaned to Murcia for two seasons, but in 2020 after having shone in Real Madrid he went to Denver Nuggets and then to Dallas.
