Julyan thanks for talking to germanhoops.com Welcome back to Germany. You played in Germany once before in January 2016 in a Fiba Europe cup game. Do you have any memories of your first game in Germany?
I remember very little about the game actually, but remember a couple of the guys like Jordan Theodore, Aaron Doornekamp and Philip Scrubb. Scrubb had something like 30 points.

I know that there is a lot of talent playing in Germany and there some guys from the NBA there. It´s a pretty good league and I know some guys playing there.
