Multiple media outlets have reported that former Saint Mary’s guard Stephen Holt will forgo an opportunity to attend training camp with the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks to play professionally in Germany.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said Holt was invited to take part in the Hawks’ training camp but opted to play overseas instead. The Oregonian posted a similar story and included this tweet from Holt that (along with subsequent tweets) appeared to confirm the news:
Thank you for the support by everyone! Tough decision on whether to go to nba training camp or overseas! I’m enjoying the process!!! 🇩🇪
