And the Euroleague is the top league in Europe and that’s why I wanted to come. I will do whatever the team needs. I will score, I will pass, I will play defense. Everything you need to win and win titles. I came here to win the Euroleague. Wherever I play, I want to win and win titles,” he said and added.
