Guillermo Diaz renewed with Caserta
Guillermo Diaz has signed with Caserta as announced by the GM of Caserta Pierfrancesco Betti. According to Corriere di Caserta in an interview of Pierfrancesco Betti he confirmed that Guillermo Diaz has signed with them to play again next year for Caserta.
The puerto-rican shooting guard signed with Olympiada in Greece last year but due to personal reasons he left the team before the beginning of the championship. Since then he played in the NBDL and briefly with the LA Clippers. He ended up with Caserta and he helped them ascend back to the LegaA1.
There is an NBA-out clause in his contract so if he finds a contract there he will be able to break the contract with Caserta. Betti joked about it and said that he will go to the Las Vegas Summer League and take him out every night so he will be too tired to run and play!
Diaz averaged 18.4 points 4 rebounds and 3.1 assists in the D-league for Anaheim in 21 games. In Caserta he averaged 8.6 points 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 8 games.
