HoopsHype Stephen Holt rumors
Stephen Holt, who played for the Hawks in the Las Vegas Summer League, has signed to play professionally in Germany next season. The guard from St. Mary’s recently finalized the deal. Holt was invited to take part in Hawks training camp, which begins in October, but opted for a season overseas. “Stephen is very appreciative for the opportunity with the Hawks,” Holt’s agent Darrell Comer of ASM Sports said. “He is very, very excited to play in Germany. He is also very hopeful that he can play for the Hawks summer league team again next year.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
In their frenetic pursuit of attention from an NBA team, point guards Justin Cobbs and Stephen Holt had workouts Wednesday with the Warriors, a team currently without a pick in the June 26 draft. Neither Cobbs, formerly of Cal, nor Saint Mary's Holt is projected to be taken in the NBA draft, but this was one more opportunity for exposure on their whirlwind tours through the league.
