Drew thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how is basketball life treating you?
Thanks for reaching out basketball has been good to me, progressing in leagues and performances every year and that´s what you want as a pro in Europe but I am currently in Poland.
It´s been a while since we last spoke. May 2016 to be exact as I gave you a season ending interview to your rookie season in Germany with the Bayer Giants Leverkusen. You have gone to play in Romania and Poland. Has time flown by since your rookie season?
Yeah I was thankful for the opportunity Leverkusen gave me to get started over here in Europe but time always flies when you look back.
This season your playing with Czarni Slupsk (Poland-PLK). There have been rumors of financial problems and the that the team will fold. Some of the import Americans Dominic Artis and Justin Watts have departed the club. Can you update the current situation with the team and yourself? The club is trying to do what they can to save the club. Dom and Justin have made the choices that were best for them and their careers. All I can do is still handle business and make the most of the situation in font of me.
