Breaking: Rutgers Transfer Signs With European Club

Rutgers forward Oskar Palmquist has joined with a professional basketball squad in his native Sweden.

Borås Basket, a Swedish basketball club, revealed last Monday that Palmquist will join them for the upcoming season. This offseason, he and his former teammate, Andre Hyatt, secured professional contracts overseas, with Hyatt joining Belgian team Kangoeroes Basket Mechelen.

“I’ve been supporting for the team since I was kid,” Palmquist said. “I had many possibilities after college, but it felt right to come home. Borås has always been my team, and I am very eager to run out at Boråshallen in front of our fans.”

Boras competes in the Svenska Basketligan, Swedish basketball’s highest level.

Palmquist chose to return home instead of finishing his last season of collegiate eligibility. While he appeared to be a positive presence in the Knights’ locker room, he never received much playing time. Palmquist only started a few games due to starting forward Mawot Mag’s injury in his junior year before being utilized sparingly in his senior season.

Best of luck to him and his hometown team!

Borås Basket was known as Magic M7 Borås for the 1999-2000 season due to former NBA player Magic Johnson’s minority ownership. At 40 years old, he played for them for five games, and they went undefeated during that time.
