Andrea Bargnani is negotiating a buyout with his EuroLeague team, Baskonia.
The former No. 1 overall pick signed a two-year deal last July. However, he was injured in February and has yet to return to action. It's unlikely that Bargs ever returns to the NBA. He is expected to seek a new deal to stay in Europe. Sat, Apr 22, 2017 10:28:00 AM

Andrea Bargnani has agreed to a two-year deal with Baskonia of Spain.

His contract reportedly has a mutual out-clause, but it would be surprising to see the former No. 1 overall pick ever make it back to the NBA. Hopefully he can stay healthy overseas with a less strenuous playing schedule.

Andrea Bargnani is interested in playing in the Spanish ACB next season.

He's likely not going to get any NBA interest, so playing overseas is probably the right move. In addition to the ACB, Bargnani has also been linked to Darussafaka Dogus in Turkey. For what it's worth, David Blatt is the head coach there.

Andrea Bargnani said he left the Nets because his tenure there did not live up to what was promised to him.

Bargnani played just 46 games with the Nets and averaged just 6.6 points and 13.8 minutes per game. "I chose to leave the Nets and a guaranteed contract because the conditions under which they had convinced me to sign were not there and being used with limited playing time made ​​no sense for me or for the team," Bargnani wrote. Il Mago has alluded to playing overseas next season, but he's off the fantasy radar even if he winds up back in the NBA.

Andrea Bargnani is reportedly thinking about waiting until the fall to sign his next contract.

Bargnani has reportedly turned down offers to sign with European clubs and could sit out the rest of the 2015-16 season after being bought out by the Nets. Il Mago is still just 30 years old, but his better days are behind him and fantasy owners can feel free to ignore him moving forward.

Nets waive F/C Andrea Bargnani.

It's another disappearing act for Il Mago. Bargnani is probably not going to be coveted as a pickup for almost any team. His departure opens up possible minutes for Chris McCullough, Thomas Robinson and Willie Reed, but none of them are adds in almost any league.

The Nets are working on a buyout for Andrea Bargnani.

This makes sense because the Nets are building for the future and Bargnani has fallen out of the rotation. Bargnani will likely try to join a contender once he is bought out, but there's no real incentive to stash him in most leagues.

Andrea Bargnani (illness) will not play on Friday against the Knicks.

No revenge game against the Knicks? Bargnani could be bought out this week.

The Nets could buy out Andrea Bargnani.

This isn't a surprise as the Nets don't play Bargnani much. Chris McCullough making his debut has moved Bargs down even more on the depth chart. He can be left on the wire in all leagues.

Andrea Bargnani scored 18 points with four rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 25 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

He's actually playing some decent ball on offense, but Bargnani can't stay healthy and he won't get consistent minutes. Leave him on the wire.

Andrea Bargnani played through an illness and hit 9-of-12 shots off the bench for 20 points on Tuesday, but added just one rebound and one block in the loss.

This was easily his best game since Dec. 10 and he hadn't scored more than six points in his previous four games. Obviously, his shot was falling tonight, but there's no reason to think this will last. Consider it a fluke and move on.

Andrea Bargnani (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

The big man is averaging just 13.0 minutes per game in his last four appearances, so this report has very little fantasy implications. Leave Bargnani on the wire.
Tue, Jan 26, 2016 06:56:00 PM

Andrea Bargnani (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami.

For what it's worth, Bargnani said he's good to go, but we'll wait for official confirmation before we mark him probable for Tuesday night. Either way, Il Mago doesn't belong on fantasy rosters in any league.
Tue, Jan 26, 2016 11:39:00 AM

Andrea Bargnani (illness) was unable to practice on Monday.

Maybe he's allergic to his game. All jokes aside, Bargs is not on the radar in any format.
Mon, Jan 25, 2016 12:30:00 PM

Andrea Bargnani (sore right ankle) scored four points with two rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes vs. the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

He's averaging career-lows in defensive rebound rate (12.4) and win shares (0.2), among other dismal advanced stats. He shouldn't be owned.
