Willy Hernangomez towards a return to Spain?

The Spanish ACB league has just released the list of players who have officially communicated their intention to return to Spain. In addition to Luke Sikma, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Zoran Nikolic and Conner Frankamp, ​​we find the MVP of the last EuroBasket in title, Willy Hernangomez.

Basket News, who reports the information, clarifies that this decision is more of a formality and does not necessarily mean that the NBA interior will return to Real Madrid, the club that owns his rights. But it officially opens the possibility of playing again in Spain.

The information falls as the Pelicans decided a few days ago not to activate their option to keep their pivot, with a last year of contract at 2.5 million dollars. Last season, the Spaniard, who passed through Madrid in 2012-2013 and 2015-2016, averaged 7 points and 5 rebounds in 12 minutes.

A month ago, he said he was not considering a return to Europe.

I was very comfortable for years in FIBA ​​basketball, you could see it last summer. It’s something we’re looking at for the long term, but my motivation and my hope is to show that I can dominate in the NBA, that I can play there and have an important role. “, then displayed the 29-year-old player.
