For anyone who missed it, Nico Mannion Signs With Virtus Bologna.

"The Warriors will retain Mannion's NBA rights. Bill Duffy indicated to Jordan Schultz of ESPN that Mannion could potentially return to the NBA in a year or two"

Mentioned it in the other thread, but I think its a really good move for him and the Warriors. He's playing next to one of the best playmakers in all of Europe, has 2 former Warriors on the team, 1 teammate related to our SC Warriors coach, so he's definitely still in the Warriors pipeline as a RFA. He can continue to develop his efficiency while getting more valuable minutes compared to being in Santa Cruz.

Also, we replaced his spot with a more NBA ready PG for any roster scenarios where we need a floor general to just kill some minutes in garbage time or if we have a game with extreme availability issues. Chiozza will be a nice emergency 3rd PG.

How much will his contract be? His QO is nearly $2M. That team is probably paying more than the QO.

Smart move by Nico. He wasn't going to play much other than in the G-league. He should now play 20 to 25 minutes a game and hopefully improve. He looked good at times during the Olympics but still needs a bit more seasoning.

I suspect this may be more a 'see ya later' rather than a good-bye. I am optimistic that he will show improvement by next summer and make a good case for gaining a roster spot.

I hope so too. I really like Mannion as a backup guard in this league. He has shot creating ability as well as playmaking skills and not to mention a nice jumper. He just needs to get to speed with the pro game. Come back stronger Nico!

When he comes back he'd better bring back Mladen Sekularac goddamnit

EDIT: And Lior Eliyuahu (sp?)

No, his QO was a two-way salary, which is about $462,000 this year, with $50,000 guaranteed.

Yep. It’s basically a version of a delayed “draft and stash”….. he’ll get better in Italy, we keep his rights, and he can come back and help us. His roster spot (or in this case, 2-way spot) is available for somebody who can contribute more until he can. And we’re not on-the-hook for his salary while he gets better. Pretty ideal.
If I don't have anything funny to say, can I still have a signature?

We traded for him a couple years ago, he may have been part of the Wiggins deal? I know we got him from MIN

How does it work with his rights?
I was convinced he would be gone for good, but I'm reading (here and elsewhere) he's still going to be a RFA for us... When can we exercise the rights?

Btw I'm a Fortitudo fan, the rival team of Virtus Bologna, so I'm pretty about this signing. Of all the teams in Italy and Europe... couldn't he go to another one?

I think it's just a matter of offering the QO every off-season, then he automatically gets restricted as a FA.

Reports say he's already recovered most of the weight. It will take some time to be back to form and play though, so that's not a good thing for him.
I hope he can have a full recovery very soon and get back on the court.

He got an intestinal virus while in Tokyo for the Olympics.

I've seen a report on the internet that he has Crohn's disease (Larry Nance Jr has it too; apparently lost 20 pounds as well, back in March). I don't know if this is true, need a more reliable source.
