Fran Vazquez continues overseas careerPosted by Inside Hoops
If Fran Vázquez ever plays for the Orlando Magic, it won’t be before the 2014-15 season.
The Magic’s former first-round draft pick has decided to keep playing in Europe. Again.
In an interview Tuesday, Vázquez’s agent, José Cobelo, confirmed that Vázquez has agreed in principle to a new contract with Unicaja Málaga, a team in Spain’s top league.
Cobelo said the new deal is guaranteed for two seasons and does not include an out clause that would enable the 6-foot-10 big man to leave Spain for the NBA. The contract includes an option to extend the deal for a third year, the 2014-15 season.
“We haven’t had much communication with Orlando,” Cobelo said. “They didn’t have much interest, so they didn’t affect our situation.”
