German Hoops  caught up with the American to talk basketball and to see what he is doing basketball wise in his off season.

How is your summer going? How tough is the market at the moment for finding a team?

My summer is going Great! This summer, I have probably touched more Basketball Courts in My Life because of all the traveling. I  have been to North Carolina, Tampa, Boston, Missouri, Germany, and now working out in Denmark. The market is always Tough trying to Find a Team , but this Year with the Rule changes and the NBA lock out, its going to make trying to find a good fit Team extraordinary hard . I Know Lots of really good players who haven´t heard any signs for Next Season yet, And with the numbers they put up you would think that is impossible.
