Nuggets Guard Has "Priority" To Remain In NBA

After his second season saw a slight cut back in his minutes, the Denver Nuggets' Argentinian point guard Facundo Campazzo insists he wants to continue to try to make it in the NBA. 

The 31-year-old restricted free agent tweeted out his desires in Spanish, which is translated to:

My priority 1, 2, and 3 is to continue in the NBA. For now, I don’t have a return to Europe in mind. It is obvious that at some point it will happen, but not now. I have it very clear: I want to try again, in whatever franchise it is, but to try again.

Campazzo played fairly well as a backup on the offensive end, serving up an array of dazzling dishes among his average of 3.4 assists per game in about 18 minutes, along with 5.1 PPG. 

He was pushed out of the Nuggets' rotation, however, later in the season, due to the emergence of rookie Bones Hyland. 

The Nuggets have a $4M qualifying offer to extend to retain his RFA rights. Either way, Facu can certainly still be a serviceable backup point guard for an NBA team.
