Bayern tabs swingman Kraemer

FC Bayern Munich announced the signing of swingman David Kraemer on a contract for the remainder of the season. Kraemer (1.99 meters, 24 years old) was part of the Austin Spurs squad for the G-League season that started last week but parted ways with that team due to a visa issue. He started his career with Oberwart Gunners of Austria and also played for Weissenhorn Youngstars and ratiopharm Ulm of Germany, as well as for Northern Arizona of the G League, where he averaged 8.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in 15 games last season. Kraemer has been a member of the Austrian U16 national squad and the German U18, U20 and University national teams. He is set to make his Turkish Airlines EuroLeague debut with Bayern. He previously played four seasons in the 7DAYS EuroCup with Ulm, during which he averaged 4.3 points in 35 games.

"I'm very happy to get this opportunity with Bayern. I'm looking forward to the German League and it has always been my dream to be able to prove myself in the EuroLeague," Kraemer said. "America was a great experience for me, despite the injury right at the beginning and the Corona crash last year. I think I progressed there as a person and as a basketball player."
