Davonte thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how are you enjoying your early summer vacation?

I’m back in the states currently. So far it has been good to just be home and decompress from the season.

Did you catch some sights in Europe after the season or did you return right away to home in Tacoma? If yes what was the first thing you did before seeing family or friends? I can imagine you sought out one of your favorite local eateries?

No unfortunately I couldn’t travel and see so I went straight home. Lol of course the first stop I made when I got home was chipotle.

Thanks Davonte for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how has your summer been?

At the moment I am back home in the Tacoma/Seattle area just working on my game. And enjoying family before I leave.

Congrats on signing with German pro A team Ehingen. You didn´t play last season. How thankful are you that you will be able to continue your professional career?

I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to continue my career I know I can still play at a high level I just need the opportunity and thanks to coach and the management at Ehingen for believing in me.

How tough was it for you being away from the professional game for so long? What was toughest in this time for you to accept?

It was extremely tough but I needed to heal my body and make sure that I am 100% and ready to make a team better. The hardest to accept was the fact I had to wait and not have the chance to play.
