CHESHIRE PHOENIX are pleased to announce the signing of American forward DEMONTE FLANNIGAN.
Flannigan was born in Ohio, USA and played for Cleveland State NCAA 1. He averaged 11 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in his senior year of college.
The 24 year old American has already accumulated a lot of professional experience playing in the Danish and Austrian top divisions. The 6’7 forward also played for the London Lions in the 17/18 BBL season, where he shared the floor with our captain, Momcilo Latinovic.
While playing in the BBL, he averaged 14.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, on an extremely efficient 49.2% FG and 50% 3PT.
“It’s great that we have Demonte joining us for the rest of the season. It has been a really difficult period for us with all the injuries which has forced us to adjust and adapt.
Demonte is a very versatile forward who has a great back to the basket game, this will definitely give us a different option on the offensive end of the floor. His athleticism and size will suit our team and will fit perfectly with our style of play.”
“I’m happy for the opportunity to play for Cheshire Phoenix. I’ve been watching their games and I’m excited to meet my teammates and the great fan base.I’m ready to get on the court and looking forward to having a great year here.”
Following the arrival of Demonte, we have parted ways with Montell Mcrae by mutual consent. We would like to thank Montell for all his hard work and professionalism and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.
