Marco Belinelli is returning to Italy to play for Virtus Bologna of the Lega Basket Serie A after signing a three-year deal with the club, according to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Marco Belinelli agreed to terms with Virtus Bologna for the next three seasons, as first reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport— Emiliano Carchia (@Carchia) November 26, 2020
Belinelli began his professional basketball career with Virtus Bologna as a 16-year-old and before making his way to the NBA, where he was drafted 18th overall by the Golden State Warriors in the 2007 Draft.
Marco made a name for himself as a three-point specialist throughout his 13-year stint in the NBA and was a key contributor off the bench for a San Antonio Spurs team that won the 2014 championship.
The sweet-shooting two-guard leaves the NBA having scored 8370 points in 860 games and draining the ninth most three-pointers off the bench in league history. Belinelli also took home the three-point contest title during All-Star Weekend in 2014.
Marco Belinelli now joins former NBA player, EuroCup Regular Season MVP, and Serbian hoops legend Milos Teodosic on a Virtus Bologna squad that is currently undefeated (7-0) in EuroCup play.
