Just like former NBA players have retired from the league and come back to buy into an NBA team, Dennis Schroder has done the same with his hometown professional team in Germany. Löwen Braunschweig was the first professional team Schroder ever played for back in 2010. Now, just ten years later, he will become the club’s main partner on July 1, in just over a month. The Oklahoma City Thunder guard has made a business move while the NBA is on hiatus.

The club is based in Braunschweig, Germany which is where Schroder was born. They currently play in the Basketball Bundesliga League (BBL), the top tier of German basketball and compete in the Volkswagen Halle arena.

In the 2010-11, Schroder started on the club’s farm team and averaged 7.8 points, 2.1 assists per game.
