We are very happy that Williams chose Loko as the first destination of his European experience. We believe that this guy has the perfect skills to become a dominant player in European basketball. And of course we expect from him a big effort to adjust his game to the new basketball style and new environment. We really believe in him and trust him to have a solid season with us thanks to his skills and mentality. The player already proved in the NBA G-League and CBA that he has the skills and versatility to have a great impact. And we think he’ll make a great contribution to our game.
