As we have been telling, Darío Brizuela is already Barça’s third signing after the arrivals of Parra and Willy Hernangómez. About three o’clock Unicaja announced that Darío Brizuela had paid the termination clause and that he was a free agent. 1,150,000 euros to be exact, which have been his passport to get to Barcelona. He signs for three seasons with the team led by Roger Grimau, until 2026.
At his farewell, Unicaja was very polite and grateful to the player, who has played for three and a half seasons with the Malaga team: “The player Darío Brizuela has exercised his unilateral right to early termination of the contract that bound him to Unicaja. The shooting guard thus decides to end his time in Malaga, after 3 and a half seasons in which he grew in his game and was a very important piece in winning the Copa del Rey 2023. From Unicaja Basketball we wish him the best in his future and We thank you for your professionalism and commitment during the time you have been part of our club”.
Brizuela thus becomes Barça’s third signing in the profound remodeling that the section is undergoing after the departure of Jasikevicius and the goodbye of Mirotic. From the sports management it was clear that they wanted a player of his profile, with great scoring ability, and finally they have decided on Basque. With a contract until 2026, his arrival opens the door to one of the foreign players on the squad. Higgins is the one who has the most numbers to go out.
