Former NBA Guard Signs In Serbia

Just recently released by the Dallas Mavericks, and after three seasons in the NBA, 31-year-old Argentinian point guard Facundo Campazzo is heading back to Europe to continue his basketball career. 

Campazzo, known for his dazzling passing, has signed on with Crvena Zvezda in Serbia. He'll earn 1.8M Euros ($1.9M USD) for the rest of this season and 2.8M Euros ($2.9M USD) for 2023-24.

Facu, also known as 'El Mago' for the magic he weaves with his passes, has averaged 5.3 points and 3.3 assists in 138 NBA games over the last three seasons, playing an average of about 19 minutes per game. He spent two years with the Denver Nuggets before signing on briefly with the Mavericks this season. 

Campazzo starred with Real Madrid in Spain for six years before coming to the NBA in 2020, and won two EuroLeague championships with them. He also won a silver medal for Argentina in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
