Charlotte Hornets center Willy Hernangomez said that doesn’t plan on returning to Europe anytime soon. The former Real Madrid player wants to make the most of his NBA experience and work towards further establishing himself in the league.
“I do not like to talk about it or think about going back to Europe. Now I am focused on taking advantage of every day in the NBA, to continue many years there and grow as a player and person,” Hernangomez said in an interview with Spanish radio station Cope.
On his 2017-2018 season with the Hornets, Hernangomez said the following: “Overall, I found a good enough balance. A quite positive one. In a season there are always good times and bad moments. I keep the good ones, in which I have been able to enjoy minutes and take advantage of opportunities,” the Spanish center said.
“It has been in a year in which I have been healthy, which is also very important. As ambitious as I am and as a competitor, I would have liked to play more, take more minutes to help the team reach the goal, which is the playoffs. But for that, I play basketball, which is a team spot. And you have to accept the roles.”
“Madrid is like my home. The fans of Real give me a lot of love. I will try to go to the Final Four and, as a Madridista, I will be supporting them.”
