Player Bio

Daniel Theis was born in Salzgitter, Germany, in 1992. As a youth, Theis was more interested in soccer than basketball. His father and older brother Frank convinced Daniel to focus on basketball. Frank and Daniel would eventually play hoops professionally together. As an 18-year-old, Daniel played his first of two seasons with Braunschweig's youth development squad, where he played side-by-side with Frank. A knee injury forced Frank to quit basketball (he is now a middle school teacher). Daniel is a three-time German National Champion, with all three titles coming while he played for Brose Bamberg. Theis and his family supports the charity Room To Grow, which helps underserved parents by offering them essential resources needed to raise children.

As an 18-year-old, he played his first of two seasons with Braunschweig's youth development squad, where he played alongside his older brother Frank Theis. During his second season, he was named All-2 Pro B Most Improved Player by Eurobasketball.com. That led to two seasons with Ratiopharm Ulm, where he earned the BBL's Best Young Player award during his second season. The big man then signed a three-year deal with with another German Bundesliga club, Brose Bamberg. With Brose, Theis would win three straight German championships. During his last season in Germany (2016-17), Theis would average 9.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks over 71 BBL and EuroLeague games.
