Medi Bayreuth is a professional basketball club in the Bavaria region of Germany, about three hours north of Munich. It won the German championship in 1989 and, after some financial difficulties, returned to the Bundesliga (basketball version) and finished fourth this season.

Medi Bayreuth is also Kassius Robertson’s new employer.

The Google translation:

Here comes our second new entry! He is Canadian, 1.91 meters tall, is called Kassius Robertson and comes from the University of Missouri! Welcome to the team of #HeroesOfTomorrow, Kash!

Robertson will replace former Arizona guard Gabe York.

“Kassius is very similar to his predecessors Gabe and Trey (Lewis),” Medi Bayreuth coach Raoul Korner said in German in a team press release. “He too can change a game due to its dangerousness from beyond the three-point line, whereby his abilities can not be reduced to it alone. He is considered a hard worker who has mastered every new challenge in his career through his irrepressible will. I’m convinced that Kassius will be a great asset to us in every way.”

Congratulations! You have a new favorite Bundesliga hoops team!
