The 31-year-old spent most of his career playing in Argentina and Spain, where he played alongside current Mavericks guard Luka Dončić at Real Madrid. In his native Argentina, Campazzo started his professional career at the age of 17 with Peñarol de Mar del Plata, where he helped the club win four Argentine League Championships in five years (2010, 2011, 2012, 2014), winning the Argentine League Finals MVP in 2012 and 2014. Campazzo was also named the Argentine League Revelation of the Year and won the Argentine Cup MVP in 2010. 

He then enjoyed a decorated career overseas, where he helped Real Madrid to two EuroLeague championships (2015, 2018) and three titles in the top Spanish league (2015, 2018, 2019). In 113 EuroLeague games with Real Madrid, Campazzo held averages of 8.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game in 113 games.

Campazzo, the current captain of the Argentine National Team, averaged 12.3 points in the 2022 FIBA AmeriCup as he helped guide the team to a Gold Medal in early September. Campazzo has also represented Argentina in the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Campazzo will wear No. 2 for the Mavericks. The roster is now set at 17 players, including two Two-Way players.
