Nick Fazekas to replace Mike Hall?
Rumors from Italian media are saying that Olimpia Milano is considering replacing Mike Hall(2.03-SF/PF) with Nick Fazekas(2.11-PF). The reason for that is that Mike Hall has not satisfied the coaching team with his performance. Having said that it's worth mentioning that in today's loss of Olimpia to Caserta Mike Hall put through a formidable performance with 9 points and 11 rebounds.
Fazekas was recently waived by the Denver Nuggets and he is back on the market for Europe but also for the NBDL as well as the Reno Bighorns would love to have him on the team. That seems unlikely though as he will earn a lot more money in Europe.
Sadly for him he has not acquired a Hungarian passport yet that will allow him to play as a european player. Fazekas is known for his shooting skill which is impressive for a player of his height. Last season he averaged 4.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in 26 games in the NBA playing for the Clippers and the Mavericks.
