Mario hezonja is on the NBA roster, signing Panathinaikos for the rest of the season. The 26 year old 2.03m Croatian forward was picked by the Orlando Magic as fifth in the 2015 draft on Thursday. Then they reached an agreement to terminate their contract with Barcelona on 2 million euro terms, but they reached an agreement to downgrade it to 1.6 million euro in return for the club’s right to play in Europe. Barcelona have now approved herzonia for Panathinaikos, but it will retain the player’s rights in Europe.
Barcelona signed herzonia in 2012. In April 2013, he played for the first time in CBA. He showed his potential through some excellent performances, especially in a classic match against Real Madrid in April 2015, when he scored five three points. But his game is very irregular. When he was 20, he bet on the NBA. He signed a three-year contract with Orlando, worth nearly $11.7 million. He wasn’t fully integrated into Florida, though in his third year there, he started in 30 of his 75 games, averaging nearly 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists. In July 2018, he signed a $6.5 million contract with the New York Knicks. A year later, he signed a $1.8 million deal with Portland. He was traded to Memphis in November 2020, but was cut off a month later.
Herzonia arrived at Panathinaikos, who is trying to reach the European Union quarter finals, although he still has a long way to go, because he finished 15th with 9 wins in 23 games, five less than anadoru eves, who is eighth and last.
