The mercurial Watt was a beast in the 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% 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 commented, “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.”
The Lions will be announcing a signing a day right up to Saturday’s friendly against the UMass Minutemen, tickets are available at ticketmaster.co.uk.
Player sponsorship is now available for Demond Watt on a first come first served basis.
Season tickets are also still available and give fans the opportunity to choose their own seat for the season as well as exclusive access to many activities involving the team.
