Rosas said about Bolmaro: “We are going to continue the talks but he is a player that we value very much and that is very important to us. I hope he has the opportunity to play with us.
To questions from other media, Rosas said: “Our goal is to find the best players we can for this organization.”
“We are lucky. Now we have a group of high-level players with Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards. We have a core of young players like Jaden McDaniels, Naz Reid or Jarred Vanderbilt, players that we will continue to develop.” ,continuous.
“We potentially have a player that we drafted in the past who will join us next year as well. We are strengthening the development phase of this program a lot. And having depth gives you the opportunity to develop for success or have the resources to make transfers and acquire players of a higher level, “he concluded.
