BasketNews sources informed that Milan was a frontrunner to sign Campazzo to a three-year deal.

However, Emporio Armani reacted to the report by saying they're not pursuing Campazzo: "Milan is aware of Campazzo status and is not pursuing him."

Real has the final word on Campazzo's future in Europe and can match any offer.

Campazzo would be a much-needed reinforcement for Milan. Ettore Messina's team is on a seven-game losing streak. They also lost their main point guard Kevin Pangos due to an injury.

The Dallas Mavericks recently waived a 31-year-old Argentinian guard.

In 8 games this season (52 minutes played), Campazzo averaged 1.3 points and 1.1 assists. 

Before a short-lived stint with the Mavs, he played for the Denver Nuggets and registered 5.1 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 3.4 assists over 65 last season's matches.

Two-time EuroLeague champ joined the Nuggets in November 2020. He has competed in a total of 138 NBA games and posted 5.3 points and 3.3 assists.

Before the NBA debut, Campazzo spent five years in Real Madrid. In the 2020-21 EuroLeague season, Facu averaged 9.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and two steals in 25 minutes.
