Leon Hoppe signed a 3-year-contract with the german ProA team Chemnitz Niners. The talented shooting guard decided to continue his positive development from the past season with the support of the Niners.
Leon is 18 years young, 1.96 m tall and one of the best shooters of the past NBBL season (3FGP: 45.5%). He managed to produce 14.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg and 1.4 apg in 25 minutes of action to help his team to reach the playoffs. At the same time he also belonged to the pro team roster of the Niners and had the chance to play against the Nürnberg Falcons and the Crailsheim Merlins. In the upcoming season he’ll be a very important part of the NINERS Academy NBBL team and will have a chance for an extended role in the ProA team.
We’re very happy that Leon will stay in Chemnitz and has the chance to practice and play on a high level day in day out in a situation where he feels comfortable as well. Thanks to the management of the Chemnitz Niners for the professional and uncomplicated cooperation. The whole ATHLEADZ staff wishes Leon the most of success on his way becoming a basketball pro.
