The Utah Jazz forward Simone Fontecchio made a jump to the NBA and found his role in the team, even though it's rather limited. In an interview with Eleven Sports, the 27-year-old Italian talked about his experience in the US.

My wife and daughter helped me a lot in making this situation more manageable," Fontecchio added.
