However, Capitanes knew that Toscano could return to the NBA thanks to a collaboration agreement between the G-League and the NBA. “Let a lot of money on the table to play with Captains and to continue having the possibility of playing in the NBA”Ignacio Abascal, president of Capitanes, explained to Sopitas a few months ago.
Although the movement moves Capitanes’ plans, the franchise remains well established as a kind of seedbed and springboard for those players who dream of being in the NBA.
