During the recent off-season, French guard Nando De Colo opted to leave the NBA and return to Europe. His career in the United States — with the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors — to his surprise, was short-lived.

“I wanted to stay with the Toronto Raptors,” De Colo told Basketball Insiders. “It wasn’t easy to leave the NBA, but I didn’t get enough opportunities and I felt I was losing my rhythm. I had to return to Europe.”
