Venice holds onto point man De Nicolao

Italian champion Umama Reyer Venice is holding onto point guard Andrea De Nicolao through the end of the 2020-21 season thanks to a contract extension. De Nicolao (1.85 meters, 27 years old) has been with Venice for the last two seasons and helped the club win the title this spring with well-timed contributions. De Nicolao lifted his 4.1 points and 2.6 assists per game from the regular season to 5.2 points and 2.8 assists in the playoffs. De Nicolao already has four seasons' worth of 7DAYS EuroCup experience to lean on going into the new season. He was a teenager when he played for Benetton Basket in the 2009-10 and 2011-12 EuroCup seasons. He moved to Cimberio Varese for the 2013-14 EuroCup and two seasons later suited up for Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia. All told, he has appeared in 44 EuroCup games, averaging 3.9 points, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals.
