Nick Fazekas is looking for a job....and he may find one in Milan. The Former Wolf Pack star is considering playing professional basketball in Italy.
Fazekas was one of the Denver Nuggets' final cuts this preseason. He was originally a second-round pick by the Mavericks during last year's NBA Draft.
His father, Joe Fazekas, told the Rocky Mountain News that Nick's top choice right now is to play in Milan, where he can make $40,000 per month.
He could choose to play in the NBA Developmental League, but the D-League only pays $30,000 per season.
If Fazekas does play in the D-League, the Reno Bighorns would likely get his rights. They begin their inaugural season this November.
