Munich (AP) – FC Bayern Munich has signed basketball professional David Krämer for the rest of the season. The 24-year-old is returning from the US development league NBA-G-League to the Bundesliga, where he played for ratiopharm Ulm from 2014 to 2019. The German-Austrian brought in for the position of the Shooting Guard is supposed to help the people of Munich with his athleticism and accuracy to master the extremely intense double burden of the league and the Euroleague. As a result, the team recently had major physical problems.
“I’m looking forward to the BBL and it has always been my dream to be able to prove myself in the Euroleague,” said Krämer in a statement on Tuesday. Sports director Daniele Baiesi said: “He performed with a lot of character overseas and we are very happy that he accepted our offer with great enthusiasm.”
As a teenager, Krämer played for German junior national teams and in December 2018 also played in the A selection. In 2019 he went from Ulm to America, where he played in the NBA G League with the Northern Arizona Suns, the cooperation team of the elite club Phoenix Suns. This season he should actually play for the Austin Spurs; because of a visa problem it did not come to that and Krämer went back to Germany.
