James Nnaji’s future as a Barça player seems increasingly complicated. A relationship that could be living its last gasps after another campaign in which the 2.12m centre has barely had any prominence under Roger Grimau and also did not have the confidence of Jasikevicius the previous year.

Barça always believed that the player would eventually exploit his quality and for that reason they signed him to a long-term contract that ends in 2027, But the reality is that he has hardly played and his progress cannot be appreciated if he does not have playing time..

Nnaji, 19, entered the NBA scene after being selected by the Charlotte Hornets in 2023 with the 31st pick in the draft, although neither the American team nor the player were sure about his incorporation. And now his exit to the NBA seems even more complicated. as he is recovering from a surgical intervention on the lumbar spine.

He wants to break with Barça

The player sees that his options at Barça have practically disappeared with the desire to be loaned to ICG Lleida, The pivot would opt to try to terminate his contract with the Barcelona teamas pointed out by ‘Esportiu de Catalunya’ and to seek a life in the United States, perhaps in a G League team to regain confidence and his best physical condition.

The solution he seeks is to terminate the contract that links him to Barça to be able to freely decide his future, but that contract that l’Esportiu estimates at 600,000 euros, It would have to be closed in some way that would also benefit Barça despite his desire to leave.

The truth is The relationship between the club and the player has been strained recently, as the player has felt undervalued in recent years. and without the possibility of improving and taking a leap forward that would take him to the NBA.

Although if there is one thing that Nnaji is clear about, He wants to test himself on American soil, either through the Hornets or with a G League team. to begin to recover lost ground.
