ANDa is official. Yannick Nzosa has extended his relationship with Unicaja until the 2025/26 season. An agreement, as MARCA already explained, which has occurred on the day that the Congolese pivot has turned 18 years old. The agreement, signed today, will allow the player to continue in the dynamics of the first team, in which he has been immersed since last season. The exit clauses both to play in the NBA and in the Euroleague next year have risen, so the agreement favors all parties.
The player himself was analyzing his future with the Los Guindos team. “I don’t think about it so much about the NBA draft now. I am clear that it is my goal, but if I don’t do well in Malaga I can’t go there. I think my priority right now is to do well in Malaga, to help the team this year, not thinking about the draft. Being here for another year or two would not be bad, because with this I could have more experience, know the game more, grow more as a player and then we will see what can happen. My goal now is to improve this season in which I am not well, physically, my shooting. I have to improve and grow as a player, learn from my teammates, “said the pivot in an interview with the club’s media on the occasion of the new contract.
Nzosa makes self-criticism and explains what is happening this season. “The season is going regular, I still can’t find my good level from last year, I’m working every day to find that level and improve it. At the beginning of the preseason I still had a discomfort, but now physically I feel fine and it doesn’t hurt at all” , he comments.
Yannick Nzosa had a tremendous breakthrough at Unicaja last season in his debut in the Endesa League. This season, the young center continues his progression and maturation process alongside his teammates and under Fotis Katsikaris. This season the figures are not coming out, many speak of that mistake that can generate that there are NBA scouts every game at Carpena, the last San Antonio Spurs.
