Frankfurt Skyliners: A disposal as a slap in the face

could be derived from The target Class, whereabouts, and have spent the Fraport Skyliners for the upcoming Basketball season, Leon scratch, nothing more. The 23-year-old Center pulls after almost two years of prefer to the League rivals of Bonn, to whom he has bound himself for one season. As a descent candidate for the Rhine countries were in the last round even worse than the hessians.

Still, scratch, who was appointed in February of this year, coach Henrik Rödl for the first Time into the national team squad looks to be in Bonn, now the better development opportunities for themselves. The Council of the Skyliners-Coach Sebastian Gleim the highly talented Center has not followed this. If scratch is smart, so the Tenor of Gleim, will continue his career in Frankfurt, because he had benefited from it immensely, "to be to Frankfurt come". But even the prospect of going in the future as a Starter at the Position five in the League games and to be in Frankfurt in the hierarchy of a fixed size, not felt the scratches as incentive enough.

Serious blow to the Skyliners

The latter's departure to be a hard slap in the face for the Skyliners. This shows that the Frankfurter as a training club have lost for aspiring professionals clear importance. With the experienced champion coach Gordon Herbert the head coach position, has formed the Center Johannes voigtmann (now CSKA Moscow), and the Power Forward Danilo Barthel (Fenerbahce Istanbul), respectively, to national players, went in the summer of 2019, the driving force is lost.

His successor, the 36-year-old Gleim, is as a Bundesliga coach self still in the learning process. Economically, too, the location of Frankfurt has hardly any charisma. The year-long Posse to the construction of a multi-functional arena has made the great visions of the future of the Skyliners once obsolete. Without a new hall, it is for you athletically and financially Die on the installment plan. To can every year, only by cheating, for the Skyliners to come to an end, especially as the effects of the Corona-pandemic complicate your work in addition. Although Frankfurt's own admission, have to scratch for your very good offer. But its a decision that will also have played a role, such as the Skyliners team in the new round is prepared. And the previous signings leave little sporting big jumps to be expected.
