Andrea Bargnani is done exploring the NBA's Atlantic Division and is ready to return to Europe.

The 30-year-old Italian signed with Spanish club Saski Baskonia on a two-year deal that reportedly has both a team and player option.

Bargnani is looking for a fresh start in the Euroleague, where he started his career with Benetton Treviso.

He leaves the NBA after being selected first overall by the Toronto Raptors a decade ago. He had stints with the New York Knicks and most recently the Brooklyn Nets.

"Il Mago" averaged 14.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists while shooting 43.9 percent from the floor and 35.4 percent from long range in 10 NBA campaigns.

Baskonia's expected to build around the outside-shooting 7-footer, and will open the Euroleague season on Oct. 14 versus Anadolu Efes.
