Darío Brizuela will cease to be a Movistar Students player in the next few hours. The referent of the school team in recent seasons will leave the club bound for Unicaja de Málaga. And it will do so with the Ramiro club plunged into a serious economic crisis and as a colista of the Endesa League.
The Basque escort leaves the "Estu" after nine seasons as a schoolboy. His departure was almost taken for granted at the end of last season bound for Valencia. He intended to make the leap to a Euroleague team that also offered him a contract for three seasons and with a salary of 600,000, but … the Students decided to match the offer of Valencia and Brizuela remained in the club all his life. The desire to leave the club, the economic situation of the Students and the signing of Toney Douglas have led those responsible for Movistar Students to open the exit door to a player who this season averaged 14 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
From Malaga it is pointed out that the transfer will be around 250,000 euros and that the contract will be for three seasons with an amount similar to that offered by Valencia in the previous campaign. From the Students it is assured that the main reason for their departure is the desire to leave the player's entity and that by that movement the signing of the American base-escort from the Anadolu Efes was made. The Movistar Students is now left with 11 tokens and new moves are not ruled out to reinforce the template.
