Former Piston fan favorite Walter Herrmann possibly retiring?

Walter Herrmann spent a season and a half as an energetic, end-of-the-bench guy with flowing locks and gigantic hands for the Detroit Pistons before returning to professional leagues overseas. Now, apparently, via Mark Deeks of Sham Sports, Herrmann might be retiring, at least temporarily. Here’s the Spanish language version of the announcement if there are any readers fluent in Spanish who want to take a stab at what it says in the comments. For now, here’s the Google Translate version:

After his great experience captaining the Argentina tour in Angola, Walter Herrmann had no shortage of offers to return to active practice of basketball, but Argentine forward finally decided to continue his life in his home town of Venado Tuerto and hanging boots.

“For now it will not play. We wait until the day we asked, which I was on 12 June, and I said no,” said his agent Claudio Villanueva told to All Network “I’m not trying to pressure you or anything . Yes was the promoter for the tour to play Angola. And I did so in case you do not play more basketball, has been removed from playing for Argentina. If tomorrow you do so, is quite apt. must be respected their time ”

Walter Herrmann had offers from Atenas de Córdoba, his last team in the National League before leaving Argentina to play in Europe with Fuenlabrada, Unicaja and Caja and the NBA Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons.
