The guard has been three seasons with the 2022 German BBL champions and he was expected to assume a vital role this season. He made his debut during the 2019-20 with the German powerhouse.
As of now, ALBA has added young prospects Gabriele Procida and Ziga Samar (went out on loan), while they signed ex-Baskonia bigman Yannick Wetzel. Coming off a respectable 12-16 record in EuroLeague and a German championship, the team hopes to at least repeat success next year.
