MANILA--Dwight Ramos will continue his stint in the Japan B.League for a different team.

Levanga Hokkaido announced on Wednesday that Dwight Ramos has moved to their squad for the upcoming season.

According to the six-foot-four swingman, he loved the atmosphere in Hokkaido during the two times his former team, the Toyama Grouses, faced Levanga last season, which made it easier for him to choose the team after he and the Grouses agreed to let him go and enter free agency.

"I'm very excited to play for Hokkaido next season. I was able to visit Hokkaido twice the last season and I loved the city both times," Ramos said.

Hokkaido looks to improve from its 21-35 record last season, and it hopes that Ramos, who averaged 10.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.3 blocks a game last year with Toyama, could be Levanga's missing link towards a playoff run.

"I'm also looking forward to playing with very talented players in Hokkaido and hopefully making a run in the playoffs next season! I'm excited to play for the fans and boosters in Hokkaido," Ramos further said. "Please support our team next season!"

He then thanked the Grouses fans for supporting him last season, saying, "Thank you to all the Toyama fans for the love and support! You guys made my first year in Japan so easy because of your support. I will keep working hard and I look forward to seeing you guys again in the future! Thank you for a great season!"
