Thanks ZN,

Great pickup by Bayreuth and great choice by David!

Germany has always appeared to be a great place to play Basketball.

He'll have to brush up on his Wagner....

3 hours drive to Prague or Frankfurt, ahh to be in the middle of Europe.

Good for him! Got to think that this will be a pay raise.

A pay raise from the G league, yes. But he was to be due 1.5MM with the Jazz if he stuck with them. This would be a fraction of that. But no one was expecting him to stay with the Jazz.

This will be an interesting test for Stockton. The BBL is a solid but not top tier league but getting better. Medi is one of the better clubs in the BBL. Medi also played in the FIBA Champions League last year as well, a third tier pan-European league. It’s about where I’d expect him to be and good spot to prove he can play at a higher level and maybe move up. Maybe a little lower level to the clubs Pangos & NWG started their careers at. He will also get to hang with his brother who has been one of the better PGs in the BBL the last few years.

He should enjoy living in Bavaria. He is about 1.5 hours from historic Nuremberg and 45 minutes from Cheb, CZ

We lived in this vicinity for three years and they have excellent beer and schnitzel and they make the best soups...

Also the several German crystal factories are in Neustadt an der Waldnaab when they also have exhibits and glass blowing shows.
