“Nigel is an excellent point guard, who’s going to make his teammates play better, and he fits well in our philosophy,” said Zwolle’s GM Adriaan Van Bergen on the club’s website.
“He had the most assists of all players in the Dutch league [last season]. In addition, he’s an excellent defender, and we’ll enjoy having him here,”
Van Oostrum also recently picked up MVP at the annual Doncaster Danum Eagles’ All-Star Weekend which saw the 25-year-old compete alongside his younger brothers Devon and Sam.
Zwolle finished top of the Eredivisie standings last season with a 22-9 regular season record before losing the playoff finals 4-1 against Groningen.
