William
Coleman
William Coleman (206-F-88, college: Memphis), the latest Buducnost's signing is talking to eurobasket.com about his expectations in the season to come and his past achievements. Coleman will join his new teammates soon and start preseason preparations for a very challenging season in Adriatic League, Eurocup, Erste Basketball League and National Cup.

Hello William, congratulations on signing with Buducnost! What are your impressions? Are you looking forward to meeting your new teammates?

Thank you, my impressions are well when I look at your club I see a lot of success, and yes I'm very excited about meeting my teammates.

You probably had other offers this summer. Why did you choose Buducnost?

I chose this team because they are very successful from what I've seen and heard and I am excited about helping this club to continue to win.

People here have some concerns about your size. At 6'9'' (206cm) you are not a typical center but your body type should be adequate to fight under the boards against taller opponents. You feel you are ready to play in stronger competition than Greek basketball league?

Yes I do feel like I'm ready, though my height may not qualify me as a "center" I feel that my size and athleticism will compensate for my height.

Did you know something about Buducnost and Montenegrin basketball before you signed the contract? Last season you played in Kavala in Greece and participated in Balkan league where you faced another team from Montenegro, Teodo. You won 89-85 in Greece and you scored 17 points and added 7 rebounds. Do you remember that game?

I have heard of the league and the team from a friend of mine here in Memphis, TN yes, I do remember this game It was very tough but we pulled out with a victory!

Buducnost has signed so far Suad Sehovic (196-G/F-87), Milos Komatina (205-F/C-84), Bojan Subotic (203-F-90) and Aleksandar Capin (186-PG-82, agency: Interperformances). You are probably the last newcomer in the club from Podgorica. You think Buducnost will be competitive in the Adriatic League and Eurocup?

I KNOW we will be a competitive team in both leagues, I looked at the standings and scores from last year and they did very well.

What are your personal ambitions for next season? What part of your game needs additional work and improvement in the year to come?

I would love to be a champion of course in The Montenegrin league Eurocup and Adriatic league but that takes a lot of work and I'm willing to put in all the work needed with my teammates to achieve this goal and as far as my game I would say my footwork would be the weakest link in my game.

A good season in Kavala promoted you to the Top level of European basketball. You averaged 14.4 ppg and 6.8 rpg in Greek league and 11.3 ppg and 6.4 rpg in Balkan league. After a slow start of your career in France you needed a chance to prove your talent. What do you think about your episode in Greece?

I think i was put into a very blessed situation to be able to play and really showcase my talent, I was able to show people what I could really do including my footwork and 15 to 17 ft. jump shot.

After a solid career at the University of Memphis in 2011 you participated at Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (Pre-NBA Draft) and did well but you did not get a chance to play in NBA. Do you still have plans to test your skills against the best competition in the world one day?

I feel like every player should want to test their skills wherever they are whether it be NBA, NBDL, or in Europe!

What is your message to basketball fans in Montenegro? What they can expect from you next season?

I want to thank all the fans for giving me an opportunity to come and be a part of their city, and I want all of them to get ready for another successful and winning year!

Thank you for this interview William. Eurobasket.com wishes you all the best in upcoming season!

Thank you!
