“I want to start by saying thank you so much for the unconditional love and support. It’s been a great three seasons, and I am forever grateful for the new breath of life you’ve given me on and off the court,” he said.

“It has been an honor representing the great city of Nagoya, the fans, and this outstanding organization. We all played a big part in changing the culture, and I hope we gave everyone something to be proud of,” he continued.

“Wishing you all the best and looking forward to seeing you soon.”

Now, he joins an Evessa team eager to bounce back.

Osaka finished last season with a 25-35 record – good for 18th place in the 24-team league.

“Looking forward to this new chapter! I’m excited to represent the city of Osaka, the fans, and the organization. Come out and support us with all your hearts!” he said.
