Vildoza leaves the NBA to go to Serbia, but Baskonia asks for compensation

Argentine point guard Luca Vildoza left the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks in the last few hours and agreed to join Red Star, from Serbia, the club with which he will play this edition of the Euroleague. However, Baskonia, his previous team in Europe before leaving for the NBA, announced that he will block this transfer because he has a clause in his favor since the Argentine National Team player signed his termination to go to the New York Knicks.

The 27-year-old shipowner from Mar del Plata will soon fly to the city of Belgrade, where he will reside for the next two seasons, after having signed a contract with the institution that achieved only one European conquest throughout history: the Saporta Cup ( former Cup Winners Cup) 1974.

The former Quilmes player, summoned by DT Pablo Prigioni for the Argentine team in the November World Cup qualifying window against the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas, played his last match with the Bucks on Tuesday night. In that game of preparation for the start of the NBA season, Vildoza scored six points, grabbed two rebounds, distributed two assists, generated a recovery and made two blocks in 24m. for the Bucks, who fell to the Chicago Bulls, 127-104.

The link between Mar del Plata, champion of the Spanish Endesa League with Baskonia in the 2020-2021 season, with the Serbian institution will be for two seasons, as reported by the Red Star himself, who has Vlada Jovanovic on the substitute bench as DT .

However, after the Serbian club made the arrival of the Argentine official, Baskonia issued a strong statement in which it ensures that the Serbian player or team must compensate him. “Baskonia owns the player’s rights outside the NBA,” says the club from Vitoria, which also reported the operation “has been carried out without the participation or consent and without paying the agreed financial compensation.” For this reason, he announced that he will request the disqualification of the Argentine from the Euroleague and that he will initiate legal action if he does not receive the compensation signed.
