Cheshire Phoenix are delighted to announce the signing of GB international Jamell Anderson.
Jamell joins the Nix’ following a year at local rivals Manchester Giants where he averaged 10.3ppg and reached the BBL Cup final. He is one of the most successful players to play in the BBL having won multiple trophies for Leicester Riders over past 10 years.
This is the second stint as a Phoenix player having represented the club in the 2016/17 season. Jamell is a member of current the GB National Team and the Basketball England 3×3 commonwealth games team.
“I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue playing in the BBL. The Cheshire Phoenix are an organisation I know well which gives me comfort and a sense of stability that I need in this part of my life.
I look forward to getting on to the floor with my new team and competing every day.
I also want to thank my wife Georgia and my family and friends for their support in this decision as well as the coach and staff at the Phoenix for providing me this opportunity.”
“I’m really happy that we have Jamell with us for next season. He is one of the most versatile small forwards and also one the most professional players in the league.
He is definitely someone who we want on our team. A player who can lead by example on and off the court.
I know Jamell doesn’t feel great about this past season personally and he has ambitions of competing for silverware, again matching our own goals. I’m looking forward to working with him again and I know he’s the type of player who will do whatever it takes to win.”
Jamell joins Mike Ochereobia, Will Neighbour, Danny Evans and David Ulph for the 2022/23 season.
