Johannes Voigtman Rumors

In the summer of 2019, after you left Baskonia, the Wizards had expressed an interest in you, bringing you in for a free-agent workout. What happened and you weren’t persuaded to move overseas? Johannes Voigtmann: The contract choice I had was between the NBA and a couple of EuroLeague teams. But I didn’t know all the aspects, the terms of the contract. They didn’t want to give me any security. Then, I had the chance to play for CSKA and I made the decision to go there. I chose to avoid the unsure way, trying to struggle around the NBA. I’m very happy with my decision. I got the feeling that they wanted to give me a chance, but their offer was a little vague. So, I went to the European game.
German big man Johannes Voigtman posted a farewell message to Baskonia fans on his Instagram profile today. After three season with the team, in fact, Voigtmann is leaving the Spanish side and might take the NBA route to continue his career.
