Wise to play professionally in Germanyby Javier Morales on Jul. 26, 2010, under Sports
Former Arizona guard Nic Wise has signed a contract to play professionally in Germany for Telekom Baskets Bonn, the same team former Wildcat standout Jason Gardner competed with earlier in his pro career.
Gardner, who played at the UA from 1999-2003, has played parts of the last three seasons with German pro team EWE Baskets Oldenburg.
According to the Web site EuroBasket.com, Bonn head coach Michael Koch had recent contact with Wise when he was vacationing in Florida.
‘Without a question Nic will really help us,” Koch told EuroBasket.com. “With many different head coaches in the last years (four in four years at Arizona), he had to have responsibility and it shows in his playing style. His stats went up in each year. Just because he is short (5-10), you cant underestimate his three pointer.”
