Bright signs professional contract in Germany
Guard from Manheim, Germany, departs for a professional contract with Fraport Skyliners in Frankfort, Germany, due to personal reasons.
Vanderbilt guard Kevin Bright has decided to forego his final three seasons with the Commodores due to personal reasons and sign with the Fraport Skyliners in Frankfort, Germany.
"About a week ago, Kevin went home to attend to his mother, who was ill," said Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings. "Subsequently, he decided that the best thing for he and his family was to sign a professional contract so he could be near her. While the timing of this is very unfortunate, we understand Kevin's desire to be present for his family in this time of need.
"I do, however, look forward to working with this year's team and overcoming these recent setbacks."
Bright averaged 6.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in his only season with the Commodores in 2012-13.
