Leandro Bolmaro has not started his NBA journey on the right foot. Minnesota Timberwolves has sent the Argentine guard (21 years and 1.98 meters) to its subsidiary in the G-League, the Iowa Wolves.

The former Barcelona player, who signed this summer for the NBA franchise, He has only played 4:50 minutes this season: against the Houston Rockets in the first game of the season. He did not participate in the next three, two against the New Orleans Pelicans and the last against the Milwaukee Bucks.

From Barça to the NBA

The Albiceleste international was chosen with number 23 by the Timberwolves in the 2020 draft, which earned him a contract of more than 11 million dollars for four seasons. But, as with first-round players, the first two are fully guaranteed (for about 4.5 million total) and the third and fourth depend on one-sided franchise renewal options.

Bolmaro had a contract with Barcelona until 2023 and a clause of almost one million euros. He will pay it, with the help of the Wolves, who by agreement can only put a maximum of $ 750,000 (about 635,000 euros) on their part. The rest will be paid by the player, who has the presence in the Wolves organization chart of his compatriot Pablo Prigioni.
