Yuta Watanabe plans to get straight back into the gym to work on his game. “In the off-season I’ll work on my shooting, so I don’t miss any makeable shots. My goal is to be on a full NBA roster,” Watanabe said. “It’s important to strengthen my body, while also improving my shot. Shooting and defense are how I’ll make my living, so those are the areas I really have to work on.”
He spoke to WMC5 about the support from the Japanese community in Memphis and his expectations for the upcoming season. “It means a lot to me… I didn’t know like this huge community in Memphis, so I love their support and you know hopefully I can see them at games,” Watanabe said. “So I think I’m going to spend most of my time in the D-league but hopefully I’m going to get called up by the Grizzlies too but I’m just going to work hard as much as possible and I’m going to enjoy it so I’m really excited about the season.”
