Derek Willis to play in Germany

Derek Willis is having a big summer.

Not only did he get an invitation to live in John Calipari’s home while he trains in Lexington, but he will soon become a married man when he ties the knot with his fiancee, Keely Potts, in Elizabethtown.

On top of all that, he also signed his second professional contract since leaving the University of Kentucky. His soon-to-be wife announced the news on Twitter last night:

Willis signed with BG Göttingen, which competes in Germany’s top basketball league. It’s the same league Darius Miller dominated for two years before coming back to the NBA.

Maybe Willis can take a similar path and return to the States after some German success?

    Love it Willis will definitely be back in the nba after a couple seasons to grow in Germany. Will be dominant for sure!

    Willis caught the same bug that Poythress & Briscoe had.

    It’s the “I look like I can play, I can play, I don’t ever show that I can dominate a one on one matchup (or win the game for your team).”
