Here is a quick Q&A with him in anticipation of the Scorers 1st Showcase in Düsseldorf in June:

What are you looking forward to at the Scorers 1st Showcase?

I am looking forward helping younger players with my 15 years of playing professionally and now coaching to reach their potential.

What is the most difficult/important part of scouting and recruiting players for you each summer and why do you think the Showcase can/will help?

The most difficult/important thing is to find a right character for your team. A really good player but also a player that wants to be part of the team and who is ready to sacrifice himself for the success of the team.

What can players expect from you during the time in Düsseldorf?

Players can expect 100% dedication. I am part of this showcase for their sake.

Anything else you would like to add?

I am really looking forward to this camp I hope that this can be a good experience for everybody.

The Scorers 1st Showcase Returns To Düsseldorf In June 2016


The Scorers 1st Showcase returns to Düsseldorf in June 2016.

After being gone for several years we have decided to bring the Scorers 1st Showcase back to Europe this upcoming June.

With the event returning, Scorers 1st will be the only international agency hosting a first class exposure event in Europe for professional basketball players, as well our annual event in Las Vegas (Nevada-USA) during the time of the NBA Summer League.

“Düsseldorf was where we held our first Showcase many years ago. After 3 editions we decided to take the event to Las Vegas and dropped Europe as a location. I think it’s time to revive the event in Europe and make the Scorers 1st Showcase the #1 exposure event for international talent from all over,” said Scorers 1st CEO Gerrit Kersten-Thiele.

“We want to provide players with a great opportunity to be seen by GMs, coaches and scouts from many different markets. It’s also my goal to provide pro teams and their representatives with a top-notch environment to scout players to fill their rosters for the upcoming season.”

Scorers 1st is looking forward to partnering with several agents and agencies from Europe and the US to ensure a great event.

“The Scorers 1st Showcase is open to players from all agencies and we invite all agents to come out as well to support their clients and to network.”

The Scorers 1st Showcase 2016 in Düsseldorf (Germany) will be held on June 11th and 12th 2016.
