Former Sonic forward Detlef Schrempf is lending his talents to the broadcast booth.
Detlef Schrempf is no stranger to the Pac-12. After moving to the States before his senior year of high school, the German native attended the University of Washington. Sixteen years and four NBA teams later, Schrempf became one of the most successful international players of his time. And eleven years after his retirement from basketball, the Seattle Times reports that Schrempf is will rejoin the Pac-12, but this time as a member of the broadcast booth.
Schrempf, the former Seattle Sonic and Portland Trailblazer, will join former Sonics broadcaster Kevin Calabro and Hall of Fame coach Lenny Wilkins in calling Pac-12 basketball games beginning this season. They will be joined by other former Pac-12 players and coaches that include Don MacLean and Brevin Knight.
Calabro called many of Schrempf's Supersonic games, as his tenure as a broadcaster in Seattle spanned three decades, from 1987-2008. Though Wilkins played for and coached the Sonics, he and the German forward's time in Seattle never collided.
