|Schachtner signs with CSM Oradea
Sweet shooting big man Mike Schachtner..
.. .. has signed to play in Romania for the upcoming season with CSM Oradea. The 6’9, 225-pound Schachtner, who had an impressive performance at the Court Side Pro Camp (UNLV/Las Vegas, Nevada) last month, had interest from several clubs from various countries, before deciding on Oradea. This will be his second year as a professional. Schachtner, the former collegiate star from Wisconsin-Green Bay, had a strong rookie campaign last season for Kapfenburg in the first division in Austria. He averaged over 13 points per game, was one of the league’s top 3-point shooters (44%) and he was only one of two rookies named to the Austria All-Star Game. He’s a power forward whose game is geared for Europe, being able to stroke the jumper from deep and with regularity. He is a mobile athlete, with strong fundamentals, able to contribute on the perimeter or in the paint. Schachtner runs the floor well and he’s more than just a shooter, able to contribute on the boards or with his defense.
