Real Madrid needs a point guard. That’s how I titled this same column, a month and a half ago, when the name of Shannon Evans as possible reinforcement. That transfer did not take place. Nor any other. the age of chacho rodriguez Y Sergio Llull with the prospect of a long season; the injuries of Nigel Williams-Goss Y Carlos Alocen; and the punctual remedies of Adam Hanga, Alberto Abalde Y dzanan muse They pushed me to think about it. But the need now seems less than then. Life looks much more beautiful after six wins consecutive. Who said crisis? The streak is good, the game progresses, the new ones join… And it has reappeared Williams-Gossafter a long convalescence from the Final Four. That is, for the moment, the best signing for the position. Madrid has been patient, they did not rush with decisions, nor did they throw themselves into the market like crazy.
There was another reason for extreme caution. Is named Facundo Campazzo. Just in those days, when his hypothetical return to the white clubthe news broke joining the Dallas Mavericks. It was a drop in Madrid’s claims. And in the desire of the fans. The return of the prodigal son. But the door did not close all the way. The Argentine signed an unsecured contract until January 10, so Madrid had that date marked on the calendar. Just in case. What was the use of desperately signing a point guard if at the beginning of the year he could have Campazzo? That possibility has arisen even before. The Mavs signed Kemba Walker on Mondaya star come to less, and terminated the agreement of the South American. The maneuver opens the door to Campazzo for a return to Europe. There are other interested clubs: Fenerbahce, Milan… But Madrid awaits him with open arms in what was his home. The point guard I needed is Facu.
