I am happy to be back for a second year here in Cheshire! We had a lot of fun and success last season and look to build on that and have even more success this season!Ben has brought in a great group of guys who will be able to get after it on both ends of the court.

I’m just glad to be part of the team and organisation once again. I am looking forward to seeing NixNation pack the house at every game this season!

Re-signing Larry has been one of our top priorities this summer.

Last season he was integral to our success and his impact on the team was huge. He’s the type of player who works unbelievably hard at both ends of the floor and with plays with passion. Because of this he was definitely a fan favourite and I know he’s ready to continue playing that way.

The BBL Trophy win and his own Trophy Final MVP title has given him the hunger to go after more this season and I’m looking forward to working with him in doing so.

See the new look Phoenix team in action next season by purchasing a season ticket.
