Bayern Munich will keep Nick Weiler-Babb in its roster for the next two seasons, per the club’s official statement. The forward-turned- point guard was one of the main contributors the past season helping Bayern reach the EuroLeague playoffs.
This is the fourth offseason move for the German BBL powerhouse, who also has retained both Othello Hunter and Augustine Rubit while they signed young promising big Danko Brankovic so far this offseason. The 26-year-old guard extended his contract until 2024.
“I am looking forward to soon reconnecting with my teammates, coaches, and fans in Munich,” Weiler-Babb said. “I believe in the project and the development of this club and I’m proud to continue to be a part of it.”

He’s entering the third season with the Bavarians. The 26-year-old versatile guard joined the team based in Munich a couple of years ago, coming off an impressive rookie season at MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg.
He appeared in 62 EuroLeague games through the last two seasons for the Bavarians averaging 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists per contest. In the BBL playoffs, he increased his season average (8.6 PPG) to 14.0 points per contest.
“Nick has improved incredibly over the past twelve months and his versatility has been a big plus for our team,” Bayern sporting director Daniele Baiesi said.
“He expressed his desire to stay with us months ago and although he is now in his third year, we think he is now close to reaching the highest level of his enormous potential.”
