Facundo Campazzo is experiencing the most critical moments since his arrival in the NBA. It is that the Argentine point guard He has not managed to add game minutes for two dates, in a Denver Nuggets that would not seem to raise their heads: this Friday they lost at home against the New Orleans Pelicans by 113 to 105. While everything would indicate that the Cordovan is no longer in the rotation of Mike Malone’s team, the imminence of the closing of the window of transfers generates uncertainty about the future of the basketball player.
Despite of unconditional support of the followers, who encouraged him days ago, last night’s game at the Ball Center showed Campazzo on the bench and without stepping on the pitch for the second consecutive game.
Campazzo had already been adding very little time on the field of play and, to make matters worse, when he entered he did so to star in the so-called “garbage minutes”, that is to say, those in which the party is defined for or against and in which youth generally act. And although the former Peñarol from Mar del Plata and Real Madrid has a playing average of 25 minutes per matchin the last two games that the Nuggets played, they did not manage to add one.
Although there is still no concrete data that Campazzo will be traded for Denver, the coach assured that he is thinking about the next team: “If we do something in the closing of transfers it will be so that it not only impacts the team now. The team now is not the same as the one we are going to have next season. I don’t know if Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. will be back this season or next, but I know that next season, with them healthy, we’ll be a completely different team. So every move we make, we will have that in mind” he sentenced.
There is a very important piece of information that runs against the clock and that is that the transfer window from one team to another of the NBA closes on February 10 at 5:00 p.m. (Argentina time), which would imply that both the franchise and Malone make an early decision. Meanwhile, the options that are mentioned in the NBA world as probable for the future of the Cordovan -through some exchange- would be three: Indiana Pacers, Minnesota Timberwolves and the Philadelphia Sixers. In that sense, there is something that is more than clear and that is that the point guard has decided to stay in the NBA.
Meanwhile, the one who expressed himself in this regard was his former partner “Chapu” Nocioni who said that “If the Nuggets decide to take Facundo out of the rotation permanently, they should open the game for a trade. Out of respect for their dedication and professionalism from day one and, above all, because the closing of the transfers is approaching and they can still get something in return, ”said one of the members of the Golden Generation a few days ago.
