Danny Jansson of German ProA team Weissenhorn joins Scorers 1st Showcase Coaching Staff in Las Vegas

Danny Jansson, Head-Coach, of Weissenhorn (ProA Germany) joins Scorers 1st Showcase 2017 Coaching Staff this upcoming July in Las Vegas and we are excited to have him working with one of the teams with us.


Here is a quick Q&A with Danny:

Q: Please give us a little background about your coaching career and your situation with Ulm/Weissenhorn?

A: I just finished my 3rd season here, and I feel already at home in Ulm. Previously I worked full-time for 6 years in a Finnish club PuHu, while also working a variety of Finnish youth national teams every summer.

So far I’ve based my career mostly in working and developing 16-20 year-old guys. That’s what I enjoy the most, and that’s what I get to do in Ulm as well. We have a good structure here to raise young players to try to become professional basketball players, and I am happy to be able to be this close and watch this progress.

Our academy team finished the season by getting promoted to German Pro A, so we will face an interesting challenge this upcoming year in a new environment. At the same time, I am coaching our U19 team, and we also have 2 other senior level leagues, so every day will keep us busy.

Q: A big emphasis with your team is player development. How can that best be incorporated with developing/creating a winning culture?

A: As most people understand, letting young players grow and make mistakes doesn’t always go hand in hand with winning. However, I don’t always see that as a mutually exclusive fact. When you are able to cherish competitiveness every day with growth mindset, you should be able to compete, regardless of the age or the level you play at.

Most of our daily functions and goals are player development oriented, but we do integrate everything to the fact that our team comes first. And the better players you have, the better chances you have at winning as well.


Q: What kind of players to you try to recruit mainly and what do you look for when scouting a player?

A: Naturally, it’s always tough to replace anthropometry and/or speed. But like Coach Popovich stated, players “that are over themselves” will always make your organization better. Moreover, this is a tough quality to find when you recruit players who haven’t established themselves or their careers yet. But when you have combination of basketball talent, high work ethic and selflessness, then you have found a keeper.

Of course, when scouting a player, there is a variety of position specific demands that we would look for.

Q: How important is it to see a player live and not just on film?

A: I think it’s very important to see players live. It’s easier to evaluate the whole nine yards when you get to see it closer. Moreover, you can also get a chance to see the things you would not see on a game tape: how does a player react to coaching, his teammates, people around him, etc.

Finally, I’m able to say I’m very excited to come to Vegas and have the chance to interact with new players and meet new people!
