Also, FWIW: I don’t expect the #Nuggets to pursue Gabriel Deck, a former teammate of Facu Campazzo. – 12:45 PM

Every single fan from Argentina is trying to place Gabriel Deck on Denver’s roster right now in my mentions, and I’m worried that he couldn’t even play for the Oklahoma City Thunder this year. – 5:55 PM

The real tragedy in all of this, is that Josh Giddey couldn’t wear the number six because they just had to have 56 Gabriel Deck minutes this year. Pour one out. – 4:37 PM

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
OKC waived Gabriel Deck for a 2nd round pick and to open a roster spot.
While Deck didn’t fit with the Thunder’s rebuilding plans, I’ll remain a fan of La Tortuga’s inspiring story and the many passionate Argentinian fans who followed Gabi in OKC.
Wish Deck luck and success.🐢 – 4:23 PM

Players like Deck always will have a solid plan B. Before the season, Deck firmly denied rumors about negotiations with FC Barcelona. But BasketNews sources around the EuroLeague suggest that Barcelona might be the top landing spot for Deck if he decides to return to Europe. However, Deck remains determined to stay in the NBA, sources say BasketNews. If not the OKC, Deck hopes there’s another NBA organization that could give him an appropriate NBA opportunity. -via BasketNews / December 11, 2021
