Following a decent first season in the NBA and a remarkable run at the 2020 Summer Olympics, former Wildcat Nico Mannion is heading to Italy.

Making his long-anticipated professional appearance this past season in the NBA, former Wildcat Nico Mannion saw decent success with the Golden State Warriors organization, as the dynamic and athletic guard split time at the professional and G-League levels.
