The Artland Dragons signed Hollis Price
The less than satisfactory 11-12 record and 11th place of the Artland Dragons has been more than a surprise for BEKO BBL followers and it has been no secret that the club has been looking for a guard and finally got an experienced player with Hollis Price until the end of the season. Price is a 30 year old 186cm combo guard that was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is not stranger to the Beko BBL as he played for 8 time Beko BBL champion Alba Berlin in 2005-2006 winning the cup in 2006.
'Hollis has a lot of experience and plays at a very high level. We were missing this type of guard. With the exception of Toby Bailey, we have many young guard who arent as routine as him. Hollis can score and set up his teammates. We didn't get him as a replacement, but as an addition', stressed Thorsten Leibenath.
The past season, Price played in Russia and Italy for teams Dynamo Moscow (Russia-A Superleague, starting five), Russian League: 12 games: 6.7ppg, 1.8rpg, 2.6apg, FGP: 48.1%, 3PT: 39.3%, FT-1 (91.3%); Eurocup: 6 games: 7.7ppg, 3.2rpg, 4.3apg, 2.0spg; in Jan.'09 moved to Armani Jeans Milano (Italy-SerieA, starting five): Italian League: 23 games: 8.7ppg, 1.8rpg, 1.9apg, 1.5spg, FGP: 44.3%, 3PT: 38.9%, FT: 89.5%; Euroleague: 6 games: 9.5ppg, 2.3rpg, 1.8apg.
