Headcoach Jordi Juste:
Franklin is a 66" forward, with a lot of
points in his hands. Great shooter from three point range with a quick release
it makes difficult to block or even contest the shot, he also understands the
game, spreading the floor or cutting aggressively to
the basket. We also expect he will be able to help in defense with his ability
to be in the passing line and help with the rebound at both ends thanks of his
size and athleticism.
When we got to know
him off the court we met a humble person who also showed a fiercely
determination to play overseas. His eyes, his look show he is really hungry to
make steps forward in his career.
He is looking forward
to start and help Nässjö Basket to get better and be a strong contender this
season. We really believe he can make an impact in Basketligan.
I wont forget the key role has played Chad Briscoe to bring Franklin in our
team. First and foremost because he organized the tryout where we got the
opportunity to watch him playing and second his interest in the whole process
to get an agreement both, the club and player.
exciting times ahead of us!

entire Nässjö organization for believing in my abilities on the court and my
character off the court to represent them. Coming to play in Nässjö was the
best place for me to start my international career. The Swedish
Basketball-League has som respectable clubs and lots of talent but I am humbled
and ready to come in and get to work to help this club get back into the
