Daum will play for Monbus Obradoiro in Spain. His team plays in the top league in Spain.

After a record breaking career in college basketball at South Dakota State which included reaching the 3,000 point career mark, this summer Daum was part of the NBA Summer League.

Daum played for the Portland Trailblazers franchise in Las Vegas. A foot injury limited his minutes throughout the summer. Daum says he will be ready to go when the season starts in Spain.

While he is excited to play pro ball in Spain, his ultimate future goal is to return to the states and play in the NBA.
