Lions’ Head Coach, Nigel Lloyd commented, “Nick has learnt his basketball the right way, he is a heady player who can hit the floor running but you see so much potential in him to really continue at a very high level”.
Now aged 22, Lewis, who hails his mother Charmaine, as his inspiration, grew up in Toronto, Canada before going on to school in New York. He has just graduated from Sheffield Hallam University and also helped his University win the Bucs Title along the way.
With more signings to be announced shortly, Coach Lloyd added “Nick’s explosiveness is a hint at how we intend to play this season, pushing the ball up and playing at pace, I think the fans will enjoy it”.
Player sponsorship is now available for Nick on a first come first served basis.
