Former FaZe member Ricardo "fox" Pacheco will play for SK Gaming at the ECS Season 2 Finals, HLTV.org has learned.
The Portuguese veteran will step into the shoes of Lincoln "fnx" Lau, who is on his way out of the team following internal problems.
Ricardo "fox" Pacheco has been without a team since being replaced by Aleksi "allu" Jalli on FaZe's roster in August. He was recently seen playing for a mix team called k1ck oldschool at some offline events, including ESWC 2016.
The decision to remove fnx comes as a result of a series of mixed results from the Brazilian team, who recently finished third-fourth in ELEAGUE Season 2. SK have not won a tournament since ESL One Cologne, which was their second Major title in a row.
SK have been drawn alongside dignitas, Immortals and EnVyUs in Group B of the ECS finals, which will take place from December 9-12 in Anaheim, California.
HLTV.org knows that SK Gaming will soon confirm fox's addition to the roster for the ECS finals, along with their plans for the ELEAGUE Major, in January.
SK will attend the event next week with the following roster:
