Nick Fazekas is looking for a team in Europe
Nick Fazekas(2.11-PF) is looking for a team in Europe according to eurobasket.com. The american power forward is looking for a european team whilst at the same time he is trying to get the papers done in order to obtain a Hungarian passport that will allow him to play as a european player and not as an american, thus giving him a bigger range of contracts.
Fazekas has been characterised as slow and weak for NBA standards but like other european post players before him he will try to seek his fortune in Europe where the game is different and his skills will be more appreciated. According to the article Fazekas is looking for a contract close to 500.000 dollars and enough playing time to boost his profile amongst european teams. Chances he will find one in Greece, Russia,Spain or Italy. Amongst his strong points are his excellent shooting skills.
Last season he averaged 4.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in 26 games in the NBA playing for the Clippers and the Mavericks.
