Well-traveled American/Nigerian guard Tony Skinn has signed with New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig to complete the Bundesliga squad’s roster. Skinn brings a nice set of leadership abilities and playmaking skills to the Phantoms, but he’ll always be a BallinEurope favorite for those incredible hops that once led to the nastiest dunk of all-time.
After finishing up his playing at George Mason University in 2006, Skinn has gone on to stints with KK Split, Stade Clermontois Basket Auvergne, Gravelines Dunkerque and Carmatic Pistoia. With Lega due’s Pistoia last season, Skinn contributed 15.8 points per game, 2.2 steals per game and career-high field-goal shooting of 54.5%.
“In Tony Skinn,” said Braunschweig club director Oliver Braun, “we have found another guard to complement Kevin Hamilton and who understands how to run plays.”
Note to Skinn’s Bundesliga competition: Just watch the ‘jewels when you’re defending the lane against this guy…
