A 23-year-old guard from Richmond, Virginia, Price did not play competitive basketball las season and is now keen on getting his pro career started. He played collegiately at Radford University with a total of 131 appearances, averaging 12.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 steals per contest. During his four years with the Highlanders, Price shot 35.5 percent from long range, having made 301-of-848.
Dresden head coach Steven Clauss said, Price has the ability to play at both guard spots and a good feel for the game which allows him to rack up assists and be a threat from beyond the arc.
