Jordan Wild Retires, Begins Coaching Career - Jun 1, 2017

Jordan Wild
Jordan Wild (203-F-88, college: Fresno Pacific) has called an early end to his professional career and will continue his basketball journey coaching at the high school level in California.

Wild abruptly ended his career after establishing himself as a valuable contributor in the German Pro A. He first made a name for himself internationally in Australia with the Sterling Senators and played an instrumental role in helping build a team culture with the Senators.

Following his four-year stint in Australia, Wild moved to Germany and played two seasons with Kirchheim Knights before joining the Hanau White Wings prior to the 2016-17 season. A family emergency forced the forward to cut his season short after just 10 games and during a stretch where he was one of the better all-round contributors in the league.

Wild's versatility could consistently be seen in the box score, where he would contribute across just about every statistical category.

His full-time coaching career begins at Oaks Christian in California.

Australian-British forward Obi Kyei departed German club Cuxhaven and has signed with Leeds Force.
