Belinelli, 31, is hoping that his play earns him a multi-year contract in the summer.
“My goal is to sign a new two or three year contract this summer. I am giving it all on the court for the Hawks” Belinelli said, according to Massimo Lopes Pegna of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sportando).
“Europe? It is an hypothesis that I will start considering in the future. It would be a normal epilogue for my career because there is always a bit of homesickness. But I love America: here I have realized my dream and I work well here. But I miss Italy and I will live there (when my career is over)”.
Belinelli is averaging a career high 12 points per game while grabbing 2.2 rebounds and dishing out 2.6 assists for the Hawks this season.
