The Artland Dragons announced that Andrew Drevo (202-F/C-81, agency: Warren Sports International, college: Nebraska) will get a 2 month try-out contract. Drevo is a 31 year old 202 cm power forward that gives head coach Stefan Koch the ability to spread the floor with his deadly three pointer something the Frankfurt Skyliners experienced when they played against the Lincoln, Nebraska native when he was playing for the New Yorker Phnatoms Braunschweig and Eisbaeren Bremerhaven. Drevo also has good size and can run the floor while adding a solid presence in the paint. An all-around player, Drevo can pass well inside and has the ability to step outside the arc, which will create matchup problems for opposing defenses. Last season he took a breather from the European scene and returned to the States to play for the Iowa Energy (D-League) 52 games: 11.3ppg, 6.3rpg, 2.1apg, FGP: 52.6%, 3PT: 34.5%, FT: 87.3%. "Andrew is a player that knows the Beko BBL and has played for two different players and played well. We dont have a player at the moment that can spread the floor. We have found this player with Andrew with the good three point shot. He is also strong enough to play with his back to the hoop. We hope that he will bring our passing game to life with his experience and game intelligence", added Artland Dragons head coach Stefan Koch .
