Marco Belinelli returned to his San Giovanni in Persiceto after the NBA season with the Hornets. The Italian guard will be free agent from the summer and is looking for a new contract as he said to Il Corriere di Bologna.
"For me that was a good NBA season but I am still disappointed that we missed playoffs. As a team it was a so-so season but for me the most important thing is to win. A lot of people are skeptical on me, but for me this is challenge. NBA was my dream and I was convinced that I would have played there. Year-by-year I improved. Now I think I am an NBA player at 100%. In every practice I give my best and I always try to develop my skills. About my free agency. I have talked with my agent and we are confident. It is too early to talk about. I am bit nervous because I would love to know where I am going to play next season. I had a great experience with the Hornets but all my doors are open. My goal is to win, playing as much as possible. Italian National Team? I didn't speak with anyone yet. As I previously said, NBA is my priority in the summer. Then, we'll see" said Belinelli.
