"David Gonzalez (Free Agency President/FIBA Agent) and I are extremely excited for Cayden. He is in a great organization. Giessen has a team in the top league (BBL), Pro B league, and the Regional League. It is a minor league system for the organization. Cayden will play a major role for the Regional team and get some practice with the Pro B team. GM Andre Cornus really liked Cayden back in April when the contract was actually signed. Cayden will have to score and rebound at a high level for this ball club and he will do it. Cayden will have a great rookie year in Germany" said Michael Stinnett (Free Agency Director of Scouting.
