Feels really good but can’t get too high or too low.

Can you remember what your highest winning streak was in college and as a professional?

No I can’t remember but I definitely would like to keep this one going to the end of the season.

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

Currently in Austin and my summer has been great.

The last three summers you were signed by Frankfurt, Kalev and Kangoeroes Basket Willebroek in Belgium. This summer however you are still unsigned in mid August. How has the summer signing process been for you? Not enough offers or not good enough offers that have come your way on the table?

The summer signing process has been good. Difference in this summer and past summers I have chosen not to sign as early and kind of weigh my options. There have been decent offers on the table but not quite what I am looking for right now.

Are you getting a little nervous now that the summer has been dragging on and you still have not found security with a team for the 2015-2016 season?

As of now I’m not getting too nervous because I am in contact with a few teams and I’m sure something good will come out of it. Right now In my career I would just like to go to the right situation.

Where would you rate the 56-51 win in Wurzburg in your all time hardest fought games?

I would place it up at the top. I really wasn´t aware how much they would press, but I saw a lot of this play in college.

What impressed you most about the Fraport Skyliners in Wurzburg?

I liked our chemistry and that we never gave up. We kept fighting and one could feel that we wanted to win in our hearts.

Have you ever played against tougher defenders than John Little or Chester Frazier?

In the States in the NCAA, many teams play like that where they press and try to rattle you. We had some problems at the start, but once we settled, we started to play good.
