European Summer League and Europrobasket player Christopher Turnquest signed with Club Arenys Basquet after a very successful European Summer League performance. Christopher came to Europrobasket a few weeks before the start of the summer league to train and prepare himself for the opportunity to showcase himself in June. After a few years working a regular job in the Bahamas, Christopher decided to give playing professional basketball one last shot. At the age of 33 he signed with his first European Club. A huge bonus of playing with his new club is that it is the feeder team for a 2nd Division Leb Gold team. They will be keeping an eye on Chris’ performance throughout the season and if they like what they see he could be called up to the 1st team! Congrats Chris, we wish you the best of luck this season!
European Summer League player Brian Holland had a tryout with Club Basket Sant Josep Badalona. He came from a good NCAA DII University but was not given many minutes on the court. With those minutes, stats and film it is nearly impossible to get interest from agents and teams overseas. Brian came to Europrobasket in May 2016 to train for a few weeks before starting the European Summer League which started June 1st 2016. After a very good showing during his time here at the academy he has started receiving interest from teams in Spain. He left to his first tryout since his arrival in Europe. Good luck and keep working hard Brian!
