Facundo “Facu” Campazzo

Facundo “Facu” Campazzo
Demond’s Perspective: Facu is a typical Argentinian point guard. Smart, relentless, and a defensive stopper at birth. Just like many other point guards from Argentina, he takes pride in locking up. He’s a pass first, score second point guard. He reminds me of a smaller Pablo Prigioni when it comes to passing. He’s a better scorer than Pablo in my opinion.  If you look at typical Argentinian guards in Prigioni, Laprovittola, Bolmero and Campazzo, they all are defensive minded with the ability to pass at a high level and score. I question Campazzo’s size but with the wide spacing in the NBA, I believe he will be able to get in the lane to dish or score with a floater over bigs or just simply getting by someone. He’s cat quick with the ability to hit the open jump shot. I’ve played against Campazzo several times and know how he doesn’t back down from a challenge. He challenges you. He’s like the David against Goliath with a Napoleon complex. A real floor general as he’s the motor of the team. Even with the Argentinian National team, he didn’t back down from DeAndre Jordan. I do feel he can get past guys in the NBA especially on pick n roll switches. He’s a good pick n roll player while he makes the right play 90% of the time. A real magician with the ball with a good handle with his head always. He’s engaged on both ends of the floor. His energy level is on high. A player anyone would love to play with. I believe he can be a solid back up point guard in the NBA if afforded an opportunity.

Intel: Facu is from Córdoba, Argentina. After speaking with multiple sources, they rave about how good of a teammate he is. A real leader and true leader on and off the floor. They told me how good of a work ethic he has. They say how passionate he is and loves the game. He’s a fun guy. A locker room guy. He’s described as the type of guy you want on your team. When I played against Campazzo when he was on loan to Murcia, I noticed how much of a fan favorite he was. He was a cool guy but when he competes against you, it’s pure war. Doesn’t back down. Some players say he can be dirty at times on the floor.  Coaches says he gets along well with teammates, fans and the organization. He’s a ride or die type of teammate. He’s a family guy with a newborn baby. 2 years he did party often but now he stopped.  He no longer goes out to party or goes out unless it’s with teammates or to a team function. Doesn’t smoke or drink and extremely professional. Coachable and even helps the younger guys on the team.
