Where did you read it?

Some more transactions previously uncovered here:

BBC Bayreuth signed a couple of guards, namely canadien combo guardOsvaldo Jeanty and 20yo PG Simon Schmitz.

EnBW Ludwigsburg adds 23yo PF/SF Johannes Lischka from Gießen.

Gießen signs SF Tim Schwartz out of Pro B and PF/C Dirk Mädrich.

SG Walt Baxley, one of the best scorers in Pro A last season, signed for ratiopharm Ulm.

Tübingen closes the gap underneath their basket with seven-footer Anatoly Kashirov, who had quite an impressive season for MBC.

New TBB Trier coach Rödl signed another player of his former club: SF Philipp Zwiener.

NT PG Heiko Schaffartzik (whose biggest fan is robbe) will leave Germany for a foreign club. A rumour at Schönen-Dunk says Türk Telekom might be his destination.

Bremernarven close to signing Jermaine Thomas: http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sections/sports/display.htm?StoryID=107218

Jason Boone contract for next season with Gottingen worth between 80K and 90K $:

07-28-2010, 08:50 PM
This thread needs some input.

Bamberg: Extended with Goldsberry. Gavel and Suput should be officially announced soon. Pleiß is expected to stay for another season. Casey Jacobsen was paid by an external sponsor last season, this money won't be there in 10/11. As could be Jacobsen.

Oldenburg: Added Aron "tank" Baynes, who'll do what he does best: bang in the middle. Don't think he'll have much of an offensive role, but something like 7p/5r could be in range. Louis Campbell replaces Je'Kel Foster. Looking for a point guard and a trio of big men.

ALBA: Signed Imanuell McElroy to a new one-year-contract. Chubb is out after the inclusion of Patrick Femerling and Yassin Idbihi. Jenkins is under contract till 2011 and I don't think there's any urgency to change that. Marko Marinovic was obviously high up their list so they're happy they got him, if we can believe Demirel's words. They're still looking for starting calibre players on SF and PF.

Bonn: Are shortening the rotation due to some slight budget decrease. Nic Wise from Arizona Wildcats will start at the point, Jeremy Hunt is backup at 1 and 2 but mainly 2. Will present another comboguard soon.

Göttingen: Playmaker Taylor Rochestie is off to Galatasaray, huge opportunity for him. Meanwhile, Göttingen has brought Kyle Bailey back. Louis Dale figures to be another pretty nice addition. Expect them to overachieve again. Highest wins/budget ration by far in the last couple of years.

Frankfurt: Aubrey Reese and Seth Doliboa off to Turkey, Derrick Allen to Berlin. Added AJ Moye. Nothing to get excited about so far.

Quakenbrück: New headcoach is Stefan Koch, TV analyst, former Gießen and Frankfurt headcoach, brother of Bonn headcoach Michael Koch. Quickly made a few moves to bring the crowd on his side in signing Artland favourite Bryan Bailey, the league-wide popular Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje, Bonn's energetic backup playmaker Johannes Strasser and former Artland hero Adam Hess. Plus, everybody is moderately excited about Tyrese Rice's potential.

Bremerhaven: Brought back Craig Callahan. Louis Campbell is off to Oldenburg while Jeff Gibbs is going for the money far east.

Ludwigsburg: New coach Markus Jochum made three interesting additions so far: center John Bowler from Bonn, German forward Johannes Lischka from Gießen and playmaker Jerry Green from Cantu, the guy that had led Ludwigsburg to their first and so far only BBL finals appearance.

Half of the teams - enough for today.

07-28-2010, 09:30 PM
Artland's moves are interesting, especially the signing of Tyrese Rice, who disappointed me a bit last season in Greece, but the guy is talented and now that he has some experience I think he can do pretty well.

Best wishes to Jerry Green. His stats will never be jawdropping but he's a leader on the court and can win games. Good for Ludwigsburg that he's back.

07-29-2010, 07:31 PM
Bayern Munich is highly interested by german U17 NT player Bogdan Radosavljevic (211, 1993).

08-01-2010, 10:13 AM
Have you news about Andrew Drevo (Eisbaeren Bremerhaven) ? Does anyboby know where he will play next season ?
What is your opinion about Drevo to Germany ?
How many strangers (and American) in team next season to Germany?

08-03-2010, 01:16 PM
Predrag Suputs wife is looking for Kindergartenplaces in Oldenburg. So I guess Suput will say good bye Bamberg and play in Oldenburg next Season :confused:

08-03-2010, 03:14 PM

Where did you get this information?? I think he will stay in Bamberg, like he even wrote on his facbook site...

08-04-2010, 01:01 PM
Obviously that information was dead wrong. Bamberg announced the resigning of Suput on a 1+1 year contract today:


08-05-2010, 11:33 AM
ALBA signed Hollis Price and released Steffen Hamann, which is a bit of a shocker. Now there are rumours of Hamann heading to Bauermann's Bayern, to the 2nd division. Those guys recently signed a starting-calibre PG though in Jonathan Wallace. It's not like many clubs in Germany have the money to sign Hamann anyway.

Oldenburg adding Steven Smith.

Marko Scekic leaving Oldenburg for Buducnost. Edit: And Oldenburg adds Oliver Stevic.

Alex King re-signing with Bonn.

What is your opinion about Drevo?
Finesse big man with a great long range shot. Has a few postmoves but that long three pointer (way beyond the new 6.75m mark) is his biggest weapon. Never hesitates to launch it.

No, he's not returning to Bremerhaven.


Braunschweig manages to keep Marcus Goree for another season. Still an excellent player for this level.

Just a quick and dirty roundup of what's up in Germany.

With only one loss so far, Brose Baskets Bamberg dominates the league at will. It's probably the best ball to be seen in the German league in a long time. Most believe it's time for a repeat of the double. Bamberg will host the league cup final four and therefore is automatically qualified.

Frankfurt Skyliners are hiring and firing constantly. But not due to lack of success but due to a limited budget and injuries. But relying on short term contracts seems to work out. With 15:6 they're second ranked and considered Bamberg's no. 1 competitor. Mostly PG DaShaun Wood (a likely MVP) and Coach Gordon Herbert are credited with this season's success.

With 14:7 Artland Dragons Quakenbrück are back. New coach, impressive roster and just recently signing CB Granada's Rob Kurz midseason as an "extra". They'll go far, they play decent not very spectacular ball and will most likely back on the european stage next year.

Still at 14:7 after yesterday's loss against Telekom Baskets Bonn, ALBA Berlin mightily struggles not to drop out of the top tier of the league. 12 professional players, 5 German internationals plus three German league Allstars and prominent European players like Dragicevic and Marinovic are currently playing the worst ball to be seen in Berlin in a long time. Trailing with 30 points during yesterday's game, the team loses the last bits of respect and the new coach already is up to a tough task. Katzurin already is in danger to miss two of this season's goals within the next 10 days: surviving the Top16 of Eurocup (ALBA's out if losing to Sevilla at home) and reaching the final four of the league's cup, as they have to play at Quakenbrück in the quarterfinals this Wednesday.

Aiming for the final four and chasing Berlin to gain home court advantage in the play-offs this season are the NewYorker Phantoms Braunschweig (13:8). Featuring former European stars like Marcus Goree and LaMarr Greer they play decent ball. Perhaps you'll see them next year in an European competition. On wednesday in the German Cup's quarterfinals they host Oldenburg.

EWE Baskets Oldenburg (12:9) were struggling heavily earlier this season. But after dominating the Artland Dragons a week ago, they might be back on track. It needed some heavy mid-season signings... Luka Bogdanovic the most prominent of them. He seems to be the perfect addition to the solid core of European players like Oliver Stevic and Mindaugas Lukauskis.

Up and down is what describes the currently 7th ranked Telekom Baskets Bonn (11:9) best. Relying heavily on athleticism and individual qualities there's good and bad games. Wednesday they have to play Frankfurt in the German Cup's quarterfinals. We'll see if they really are able to compete with one of the league's top teams. If the play-offs were today, it would be the match-up.

The eighth rank is - as usual - highly competed for. Eisbären Bremerhaven currently are ranked 8th with 11:10, narrowly trailed by TBB Trier (11:10) and EnBW Ludwigsburg (10:11) as well as BG Göttingen (10:11).

While Bremerhaven and Ludwigsburg are typical BBL teams with not well known Americans and the occasional German player (Schwethelm at Bremerhaven, Alex Harris at Ludwigsburg), Trier is a bit of a surprise this season. Coached by former NCAA-Champ and ALBA-Berlin player Henrik Rödl, a team consisting of a mix of young Germans (Fassler, Zwiener, Zirbes) and experienced players like Dojcin and Evans plays decent ball and wins more games than expected.

Another sad story is BG Göttingen. While playing impressive in EuroCup, beating Aris on the road and aiming for the EuroCup's quarter-finals, in the German league they lack what's been making them strong during the last years: Defense, team effort and hustle.

I'll just drop those teams, who neither compete for playoffs or in the cup. Facing relegation are Murat Didin's Gloria Giants Duesseldorf (3:17) which become more and more of a one-man-show, as Didin now is not only head coach but took over the position of General Manager as well. Bayreuth (5:15), Giessen 46ers (6:16) and MBC Weissenfels (6:15) compete for the other relegation spot.

Hey, what's up with Misan Nikagbatse? Did he retire or what?
He was rumored to join San Severo (Italian LegaDue) in the first months of the current season but it didn't happen.

Beko BBL Announce First Awards For Tibor Pleiss, Phillip Zwiener, Immanuel Mcelroy And Dashaun Wood - Apr 12, 2011 (by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber)

It is that time of the year again where the beko BBL announces which players have shined best in certain categories. After winning rookie of the year last season, Tibor Pleiss won another award this season with best German young growth player. Pleiss who is playing his second season with the Brose Baskets Bamberg and already has 3 titles with the Bavarian club and was drafted in the NBA last summer and given to the Oklahoma Thunder got 54 votes. Ratiopharm Ulm point guard Per Guenther (185-G-88) recieved 31 votes and Robin Benzing (208-F-89) 27 points.

The beko BBL also handed out the most improved player for the first time and the recipient is TBB Trier forward Philip Zwiener (198-F-85, agency: Court Side) Zwiener who came from 8 time beko BBL champion Alba Berlin last season has been a big reason for the team from the Mosel being a playoff team for most of the season. His teammate Maik Zirbes came in second place and German National player Per Guenther (185-G-88) came in third place.

In the last years, no beko BBL player has been able to get by Alba Berlin guard Immanuel McElroy (193-G-80, college: Cincinnati) concerning the best defensive player of the year. Mcelroy has been the best defensive player in the league since the 2006-2007 season. Bamberg might have won the season series on the court against Alba Berlin, but when it comes to defense, Mcelroy won his own showdown against Bamberg players Tibor Pleiss that snatched 32 points and his teammate Anton Gavel (189-G-84, agency: Pro One Sports) recieved 26 votes.

There was no surprise as to who would get best offensive player of the year as DaShaun Wood (185-G-85, college: Wright St.) dominated this category getting 123 points. Wood is leading the beko BBL in scoring and there was no player that could challenge him as Artland Dragon guard Tyrese Rice (185-G-87, agency: Priority Sports, college: Boston Coll.) came in second place with 34 votes. This is the biggest lead between the first and second player in the history of the beko BBL. Bamberg forward Predrag Suput (200-F-77, agency: Beo Basket) came in third place with 25 points. Last years winner Julius Jenkins (187-G-81, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Georgia Southern) landed in ninth place.

Very talented bigman! He has an good season in germany by a mid class team names Tübingen. His Defense is in need of improvement. His strengh lies in offensive work. He has good centermoves and can score reliable.

I think there is still great potential...

Hey guys, just wondering what you think Aron Baynes' salary would be approx.?

At the beginning of the season he was introduced as one of the most talented bigman on the european market. So I think he earns something around 200 k, perhaps a little bit more.

But that is only an assessment! I haven't any sources...

He was rumored to join San Severo (Italian LegaDue) in the first months of the current season but it didn't happen.
Probably you already know about it by now, but he's with Gießen 46ers.

Misan Nikagbatse is no more. He changed his surname to Haldin (mother's last name) due to personal reasons.
