Where in the world is Port Wing, Wisconsin native Megan Gustafson headed to next? The former Iowa basketball star just wrapped up her rookie season with the WNBA's Dallas Wings and now the 2018-2019 National Player of the Year is headed to play basketball for her first professional season overseas.

"You know I learned a ton. As a rookie coming in, you all have that steep learning curve, but I was kind of opened minded coming into it and I'm just really excited to go to Budapest, Hungary," explained Gustafson. "I've never been there, but I'm excited to learn about the culture and I'm excited to get to know the team."

Gustafson just wrapped her season with the Wings on September 8th and she's headed to Hungary within the next few days as her new team is set to play in their very first game in about two weeks. She'll join NKE-Csata in Budapest for the 2019-20 season. Gustafson explained that she'll be playing overseas until at least March, potentially longer if her team makes the playoffs.

"It's just been a learning experience more than anything. I've been able to develop my game in terms of stuff other than things I've been used to in college, such as perimeter and three-point shooting, so I'm really, really excited to implement that into games coming up here," she added.

Following her season overseas, Gustafson will become an unrestricted free agent in the summer. She explained the Wings have shown interest, but her plan right now is to focus on her performance in Hungary.
