Facundo Campazzo Signs Two-Year Deal With Nuggets

NOVEMBER 30: Campazzo has officially signed a multi-year deal, according to team press release.

NOVEMBER 21: The Nuggets will sign Campazzo using their bi-annual exception, according to Mike Singer of The Denver Post, who reports that the deal will have an overall value of $6MM.

NOVEMBER 20: The Nuggets have reached a two-year agreement with Argentinian guard Facundo Campazzo, HoopsHype tweets.

The contract is fully guaranteed, Marc Stein of the New York Times tweets.

The Real Madrid point man has been one of Europe’s top guards for several seasons. Campazzo, 29, has played overseas since 2008 and has been with Real Madrid since 2014.

Several NBA teams were reportedly interested in him, including the Spurs, Timberwolves and Mavericks. He could emerge as the top backup behind Jamal Murray in Denver.

A two-time EuroLeague champion and three-time Spanish League champion, Campazzo has also been part of four Argentine League championships. He’s also won a EuroCup Defensive Player of the Year award.

In 28 EuroLeague games last season, Campazzo averaged 9.9 PPG and 7.1 APG. His 3-point percentage slipped to 31.0% but he’s typically a reliable outside shooter, knocking down 37.5% of his long-range shots the previous two EuroLeague seasons.

      He’s leaving town for a new contract and a shot at a starting gig next off-season. So Nuggets will probably move him now.

    Jrue is not necessarily a PG, and Monte Morris may want out.

    Gotta say, Dana, the Nuggets already drafted RJ Hampton, and it seems like that should be mentioned in the article. But HR articles never seem to include players that just got drafted. They’re usually pretty fluid at this point, but all the player movement is confusing.

    I think the Bucks could have saved a lot of assets by getting Morris instead of the Jrue overpay. But they wanted a bigger name.

    Bogans may also be in the mix… or even Bledsoe & Hill

    He’s listed at 5’11” that’s going to be tough to defend the 6’4” NBA PGs
