Mauricio Marin (21) leaves FC Bayern Basketball and next season will play for rent4office Nürnberg in the 2. Basketball-Bundesliga. "We’d like to thank Marco for all the hard work he has put in here. Moving to Nürnberg is a very good opportunity for him. There he’ll learn to take on even more responsibility," explained FCBB chief executive Marko Pesic.

At just 18 years old, Marin transferred from Alba Berlin to FCBB in summer 2012. There the 6’3’’ shooting guard developed into one of the star players of Bayern’s second team, managed by head coach Oliver Kostic in the South-West Regionalliga, and also made the step up to the A2 national team. In 19 Regionalliga appearances last season the Berlin-born player averaged 18.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. With that Marin was a valuable member of the Bayern Bundesliga squad and also a part of the first team in 2014.

"I’d like to say a huge thank you to the whole team, my teammates and the fans for the last three years. I’ve always felt really happy as a member of the FCBB family here in Munich," said Marin as he waved goodbye to Munich. "It’s just the right time for me to take on a new challenge and to take the next step in my career," he continued.

FC Bayern Basketball wishes "Maure" the best of luck and lots of success in his new venture in Nürnberg.
