You played 8 games for BC Steaua Turabo Bucuresti (Romania-Div.A) and left the team. Why didnt this situation work out for you?
I played 8 eurochallenge games with them and 22 games overall but the situation and the overall experience didn’t pan out the way we had planned so it was best for me to start over else where.
