“I’m grateful to have the opportunity to continue my basketball career professionally,” Wolf said. “It’s been a dream of mine since I was a child. I’m excited to start this chapter of my life and embrace the new environment and culture. I’m determined to bring the leadership qualities I’ve learned throughout college to my new team so we can improve and become top contenders in the division.
