American center Devin Booker has explained why he signed a one-year extension with German champions Bayern Munich.

The 27-year-old player is entering his third season with Bayern, who won the 2017/18 German Basketball Bundesliga title.

Booker joined the Bavarians in 2016 and has been very successful in both the league (12.5 ppg) and in the EuroCup (13.6 ppg).

He was one of the most spectacular players in both competitions, not least because of his crashing dunks.

"I am very happy to return to Munich, where we are very comfortable with each other," said Booker on the team's official website.

"I hope and expect that next season we will again have unforgettable moments like this year."

"A strong signal of stability and continuity"

Daniele Baiesi said on behalf of the Bavarians that he was, "very pleased that Devin will stay for another year, because this will not only give us a great player but also a great person," said the FCBB sports director.

"At the same time his third year with us is a strong signal for the stability and continuity of our club," he added.

Booker has "improved greatly in his second year and developed into one of the best Big Men in Europe. We are very confident that together with Bayern he will take his game to the next level."

Bayern are set to participate in the 2018/19 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague which is scheduled to start in October 2018.

The German giants will be hoping to clinch their maiden EuroLeague title.
