The future of Gabriel Deck passes through the NBA and, specifically, by the thunder, the team to which left Real Madrid at the end of last season to play the last 10 games with a non-guaranteed contract for the next two years.

The Oklahoma franchise You have until August 30 to exercise a unilateral renewal option and a few weeks ago he assured her that they would exercise it. Another thing is that the Thunder, in full reconstruction, decide later to include him in an operation and send him to another NBA team.

In the last hours several rumors emerged about the possible interest of Barcelona for signing him, but the player’s environment denied MARCA that there had been any contact with the Barça team. Various clubs Euroleague, including the Barcelona and the Baskonia, they asked a month and a half ago about their situation, but they all received the same answer: The intention of the Argentine player of 1.98 meters and 26 years is to continue in the NBA. In fact, after the Olympics, where he meets his team, you will go through Madrid to renew your work visa in the United States.

A possible return to Europe seems very complicated. First, because of the forward’s wishes to continue in the NBA. And second, because Real Madrid included him in the score, with which he retains his rights in the ACB and he could get you back by matching the offer he received.

The economic situation of Barcelona it would prevent him from entering into a negotiation with whites for their rights. The Catalans have already seen how the desired Nikola Kalinic escaped towards a club that is not too economically powerful as the Red Star. To the payment to Madrid, the player’s salary would have to be added.

Barcelona, ??after the exits of Adam Hanga and Víctor Claver and the impossibility of signing Kalinic, they will have to continue looking for a forward who can play a few minutes as power forward, which is the coveted profile that they want and for now cannot find.
