Pharroh Gordon:

“It feels good to be back at Phoenix, I think it’s quite a natural process, mutually the Phoenix and I are fans of each other, so there wasn’t much stress over negotiations.

“I felt coming back would be the best thing for me personally, I already have a relationship with the Phoenix staff and I am comfortable here, which right now I think is what I need to propel onward.”

Coach Ben Thomas:

“Bringing Pharroh back was an easy decision for us. In the short time he had with us last season he really impressed on the floor. I expect even more improvement this season and I know he’s ready to prove himself within the BBL.

“Pharroh is another versatile player who can play both in the guard spot but also as a small forward when needed. After coming in late last season he settled into the team really well, proving to be a great team mate which is hugely important for us as a club.”
