Meech thanks for talking to germanhoops.com. Where are you at the moment and how has your summer been?
Hello Miles it’s nice to meet you. I’m currently in Hong Kong working out.
Before we get to the meat of the interview how did you obtain the nickname Meech?
Lol it’s funny because I actually got my nickname in high school from some random guy walking down the hallway and it just stuck ever since.
After a tough rookie season in Greece where you gained good experiences with the game and talented players, how did you enter your second professional season transfer market? What were you seeking as a player for your next move?
Coming into my second season I was just looking for a team that was willing to help develop me as a player and also a team that I could fit in their play style.
