Nate thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how are you spending your Sunday?

I am currently in Cleveland Ohio and I spit my time between Cleveland and Pittsburgh. It is Sunday so today I am just relaxing watching football.

The 2013-2014 season in Europe has started and you are still unsigned. How tough has it been sitting around and staying positive?

Its been very difficult for me to stay positive, but also motivational when I do get my chance to play this season I will not forget the feeling of sitting around having to wait to play, and all of the teams and people who have doubted me so whatever team is smart enough to pick me up will have a highly motivated player to say the least.
