FC Barcelona has reached an agreement with Juan Carlos Navarro to lower his release clause so that he can fulfil his dream of playing in the NBA.


Negotiations between Barša and Joan Carlos Navarro have been easy and productive. FC Barcelona has lowered his release clause in order to pave the way for his move to the NBA. At the moment it’s still not clear which team he will move to but Juan Carlos is delighted at the challenges opening up to him and the help he’s received from Barša. He told us: “Barša have made the process so much easier”.

Team still to be decided

Back to Barša

However, Navarro is quite clear about what he’ll do after his American adventure: “If things don’t go well for me or if I’m not comfortable, I’ll come back to Barša”. Juan Carlos Navarro has been mulling over a move to the NBA for some time and was selected by Michael Jordan’s Washington Wizards in the second round of the 2002 draft (number 40). He’s up for a change of scene though he admits to some apprehension: “It’ll be tough but I think it’ll be good for me professionally and also to renew my motivation”.

A Barša Crest
Joan Carlos Navarro frequently changes his look, especially since he attained sporting success. Now he’s back with a crest, which he made famous in the junior squad that won the Varna Europe Championships and the Portugal World Championships, and also with the senior squad in the Japan World Championships. He’s dyed it in the claret red of the Barša colours – a sure sign that things are going well for “La Bomba”.
