Prievidza is excited to have Sitton back in the lineup for another season and sees him as a major piece for the club moving forward.
“Grant was a key player for us to re-sign for this upcoming season. He fits exactly what we are looking for as a person, teammate and player,” said Prievidza Head Coach, Ryan Pannone. “I really believe in his talent and I believe he will develop into a high-level player in Europe. Our plan is to play and develop him more as a 3 next season and play him similar to a Kyle Korver type of player.”
