Sharpshooter, Marco Belinelli is leaving the NBA

Marco Belinelli spent 13 seasons in the NBA and put up a tireless amount of jumpers. His next shot will come in his native land of Italy.

The 34-year-old shooting guard announced he will be signing with Bologna-based side Virtus Segafredo, and the player and team made it official on Thursday.

Known as a selfless teammate who loved to keep the mood light and for his ability to score in bunches, Belinelli will be missed in the NBA. He was originally drafted by the Golden State Warriors in 2007, 18th overall, and is a perfect case of hard work paying off in the long run as it took him awhile to get legit minutes in the league.

'Beli' finished his career with his second stint in San Antonio with the Spurs, and his career also took him to Sacramento, Charlotte, New Orleans, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Toronto.

Belinelli's best year was in 2014 when he was a key piece for the Spurs off the bench and helped guide them to a championship over the Miami Heat. He also won the 3-point contest that season.

The Italian guard finishes his NBA career averaging 9.7 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. He knocked down 37.6% of the long-balls he attempted and never met a shot he didn't like. 

We wish 'Beli' nothing but the best back overseas.
