We are pleased to announce the signing of American forward Tahjai Teague.
Teague joins the Phoenix after a successful stint in Portugal where he averaged 11.8ppg and 5.6Rbs, following a 4 years at NCAA division 1 career at Ball State University.
The 6’8 forward was named in the MAC All-Defensive team and All-MAC first team in 2020 averaging 14.4pts and 9.1rbs per game during his senior year.
Tahjai hails from a basketball family and is the cousin of NBA All-Star Jeff Teague and London Lions guard Marquis Teague.
“I am excited to be apart of the Cheshire Phoenix this coming season. Thank you to Coach Ben and the club for reaching out to me and I can’t wait to get to work in the BBL.”
“Signing Tahjai has been really important for the team. He brings a lot of offensive creativity to our front court but a great defensive presence at the same time. He is versatile and can play as a power forward or an undersized centre when needed. I know he’s a competitor who wants to play and I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
