Bright Watt to light up London Lions

LONDON BOUND: Desmond Watt

BASKETBALL OUTFIT London Lions have acquired the services of highly-rated Demond Watt who will join the team for the 2015-16 season.

The mercurial Watt was a beast in the British Basketball Leaue (BBL) last season bagging numerous player of the month awards playing for the Cheshire Phoenix. A stat line of 19 points and 12 rebounds whilst shooting an eye popping 64 per cent from the floor marked Watt as key man on his team.

At 6’7” Watt is athletic and commands the painted area. A graduate of Texas A&M University in the US, he was a key player there also, his last college season nailing 15 points and 9 rebounds. Following graduation Watt had seasons in Sweden and Iceland, winning the Championship in 2014 with KR Reykjavik.

Lions Head Coach, Nigel Lloyd said of his new charge: “Demond is a solid acquisition for us, he is proven and that’s the best thing I can say, he knows what our League is about and clearly goes to battle each and every night, I think he will bring a steel and character to us that will be positive.”
