“My family is in a difficult position,” Bayles said. “Obviously, homesickness played a major role in (the decision). Initially, I was planning to be with my family, and I felt (pursuing pro ball) is a better opportunity for me and my family, and I’m able to take care of them.”
“It was definitely hard for me to be away from (my family),” Bayles said. “The COVID year made me homesick even more. There were less things to do to take my mind off it. It was definitely tough.”
Bayles is hopeful of landing a spot in Australia’s National Basketball League. Bayles was training with the Sydney Kings ahead of joining the ’Bows.
“I feel I set out and accomplished what I wanted to do,” Bayles said. “Ever since I was a kid, my dream was to play college basketball. I accomplished that.”
