Nico Mannion says goodbye to Virtus Bologna

Virtus Bologna and Nico Mannion are saying goodbye. The Italian point guard, in fact, will be a new player of Baskonia. Just the former Golden State Warriors took it upon himself to say goodbye to the Bologna fans through a touching message on his own social profiles.

“To the city of Bologna, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You welcomed me in one of the most difficult moments of my life and supported me through all the ups and downs. Thank you to the club, the fans, all my teammates and a special thanks to Drs. Gionchetti and Borghi for helping me recover from physical problems and bringing me back to full health.

I have made bonds here that will last a lifetime and I will always be grateful for these friendships. My career continues to take me to different parts of the world and I am grateful for each new chapter in this adventure. Bologna will always have a special place in my heart.”

Next stop….Baskonia” this is the message from the Italbasket point guard.

The former Arizona player says goodbye to the Felsinei after two seasons in which he won two Italian supercups and one Eurocup. This season Mannion averaged 10.5 points and 3.3 assists per game in the league. In the Euroleague, however, he finished with 5.9 points and 2.6 assists per contest.

Before settling down with the Spanish club, the Blue decided to take part in the NBA Summer League with the Milwaukee Bucks jersey.
