With three days left in the Euroleague transfer deadline, the timing of Andrea Bargnani entering the market as a free agent seems quite intriguing.
However, at this point the Italian star is not expected to return to Europe. According to Eurohoops sources near the situation, Bargnani is going to try and sign a contract with an NBA team for the rest of the season. There’s nothing imminent on this front, but Europe is still far away for him and a very unlikely scenario for the moment.
It remains to be seen if Bargnani will get his wish and find a NBA contract for the next few months. In any case the “Magician”, as he is called in Italy, is expected to be one of the stars of the Italian national team in the upcoming pre-Olympic qualification tournament which will be held in Torino, Italy.
