Bamberg brings back Stuckey

Brose Bamberg brought back a familiar face to the team, none other than guard Maurice Stuckey, who inked a two-year deal with the nine-time German League champions on Tuesday. Stuckey (1.90 meters, 28 years old) arrives from s.Oliver Wuerzburg, where he averaged 11.7 points on 89.6% free throw shooting and 2.9 rebounds in 34 German League games last season. He already played for Bamberg from 2009 to 2012, also performing for the club's linked team TSV Troester Breitenguessbach. Stuckey also played for Leitershofen, Erdgas Ehingen Urspringschule and SG Urspringschule Schelklingen before joining Bamberg, as well as for Wuerzburg and EWE Baskets Oldenburg after that. Stuckey helped Bamberg win the German League double - league and cup titles - in 2011 and lifted the German Cup trophy in 2015. He has also been a member of the German national team. "If you have the chance to take the next step in your career, you have to use it. At Brose, I see this opportunity more than given. I have shown in recent years that I can be a performer in the German League. Now I want to take the next step for me and prove it on the international stage," Stuckey said. "I know Bamberg from before. It was my first professional station. In recent years, the organization has evolved, is one of the best ones in Germany. I am sure that I can continue my development here."
