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.
