Free agent big man Freddie Gillespie is headed overseas for the coming season, having signed a two-year contract with Bayern Munich in Germany, according to a press release.
Gillespie said in a statement that he’s looking forward to making the move to Munich and intends to bring rebounding, defense, rim protection, and strong screen-setting to the German team, which competes in the EuroLeague.
After going undrafted out of Baylor in 2020, Gillespie has spent the last two seasons bouncing back and forth between the NBA and the G League. He has appeared in 29 total games at the NBA level for Toronto and Orlando, averaging 4.6 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 1.0 BPG in 17.6 minutes per contest.
Gillespie has also played in 37 G League regular season games for the Memphis Hustle – the Grizzlies’ NBAGL affiliate – across the last two years, putting up 9.7 PPG, 7.8 RPG, and 1.6 BPG in 23.6 MPG.
Assuming Gillespie plays out his new contract with Bayern Munich, he’ll return to the free agent market in 2024.
