46ers and veteran Bryant separate

Captain John Bryant, formerly the most valuable player in the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL), has terminated his contract with the Giessen 46ers and is moving to competitor Syntainics MBC from Weißenfels. The last average of twelve minutes per game was “not satisfactory for both sides”, said the people from Giessen.

Bryant signed with MBC until the end of the season and is scheduled to make his debut at the Hamburg Towers on Friday (8.30 p.m. / MagentaSport). “The fact that John Bryant was dissatisfied with his personal situation in Gießen proved to be a stroke of luck for us,” said MBC coach Igor Jovovic.

Apart from a stopover in Paderborn (2020/21), Bryant has played for Gießen since 2017. In the 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons, the burly center in the ratiopharm Ulm jersey was voted league MVP. In 2014, Bryant (34) became German champion with Bayern Munich.

“Unfortunately, it is sometimes the case that what is planned and hoped for does not occur and cannot be implemented. Both John and we have recognized that the current situation is not satisfactory for both sides, and we therefore mutually decided on a termination agreement,” said the managing director and sports director Sebastian Schmidt.
