Johannes Voigtman Rumors

Just hours after the announcement about Mo Wagner missing the Eurobasket, the German team bounced back with an 87-83 win over Belgium in a very close game. Franz Wagner with 23 points and five rebounds and free agent Dennis Schroder with 21 points and seven assists got the job done. Daniel Theis added 8 points for the winning side, which didn’t use Karim Jallow, Maodo Lo, Johannes Thiemann, and Johannes Voigtmann.
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. The Washington Wizards are showing strong interest for Voigtmann and, as of right now, they’re considered frontrunners to sign the big man, a league source told me.
