Another good news for Gabriel Deck, the Argentine forward who plays in the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA. A week ago the extension of its contract with this franchise had been notified until at least January 2022 and this Wednesday it was confirmed that it will be added to the preseason for next season in the best basketball in the world.

Tortuga’s contract was partially guaranteed if he was not cut before August 30, which did not happen, and his continuity in the NBA is assured for a little longer, although it is necessary to see now if a place can be won this preseason or if it is transferred to another franchise.
HIS NBA DEBUT
Deck debuted on April 30 in the Thunder after a quick exit from Real Madrid and he played 10 games in the NBA last season, averaging 8.4 points in 21 minutes on the court.

After catching the coronavirus, he could not be 100 percent at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but now he is in good condition. Thus, he will begin training with the Thunder, who already have 13 defined positions and two at stake, one of which will be for rookie Czech guard Vit Krejci, while the remainder will be the one to catch Deck to continue in Oklahoma.
Of the other Argentines in the NBA, both the permanence of Facundo Campazzo in Denver Nuggets as the arrival from Barcelona, Spain, of Leandro Bolmaro from Cordoba to Minnesota Timberwolves.

Therefore, the only doubt about it is the Mar del Plata Luca Vildoza, who was analyzed in the New York Knicks preseason and is still not guaranteed his insertion in that franchise.
