Quinton thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how content are you with your basketball life at the moment?

Thank you guys over at German Hoopsfor your continuous support over the years. I am Currently playing in the LNB, which is the top league in Peru. I am very satistified with my living arrangements and basketball life here in Peru. The people here are very generous and helpful.

You started the season with KK Radnicki Gorazde (Bosnia-D2), but left in pre season. Why was your stay so short?

 I spent the pre-season in Bosnia, which was a great experience, however the team was very young and at this point in my career I am trying to grow as a player on the court and I am looking to play alongside more experienced guys. I feel as though it will allow my game to develop

You have witnessed the last few years how difficult it is in general to find a team. Did experience with the process make the time finding a new team easier for you?

Yes, I feel as though the market is very hard to breakthrough, you must have patience and faith while you are going through the process of finding a job in this business. Without these two things, it´s very hard to continue to move forward.
