How is the market moving and when will we see new signings from Braunschweig? 

Overall the European market is moving much slower than in the past, but obviously we’re all facing the same challenges with Corona. Nobody can accurately predict the future, so it’s normal that teams are being very careful and diligent in their planning process. With the transition to new ownership here thanks to Dennis Schroeder, we also have a new sports director so I’m excited about what the future holds. We’ve recently announced the very important signing of Lukas Meisner, but we still have some work to do and there will be more additions announced in due time.

How is the new team structure?

As is the case with any company that has new ownership, there’s a necessary learning phase for all parties to get acclimated and adjusted. Longtime coach and Braunschweig legend Liviu Calin is back with our team and it’s been a joy to work together with him in the gym everyday developing the players we still have under contract from last season. Oliver Braun is our new sports director and was actually here in the past so he knows the landscape and has the connections to bring people together to focus on our common goal. I can tell you that there’s a lot of positive energy in Braunschweig behind the scenes right now and people are all slowly starting to move in the same direction. 

What are your projections for next season? 

It’s way too early for me at this stage to make predictions about next season because we don’t even have a full team together yet. In many ways next season will represent a new beginning for us as an organization and I’m excited to be a part of this process. Our future success will be determined by our ability to bring people together and truly work hand in hand for a common goal. Braunschweig has a rich basketball tradition and there’s still work to be done behind the scenes to repair some of those old wounds while simultaneously planting seeds for the future. I can promise that we will work hard, play a style of basketball the represents our city with pride, focus on player development and take it game by game.
