We are delighted to announce the signing of American guard Marcus Evans.
The 6’2 guard played last season at BBL club Bristol Flyers where he averaged 16.6 points per game and 5.5 assists per game during the 2021-22 season.
Marcus joins the Phoenix from Swedish side BC LF Lulea, where he started the season, averaging 10ppg and 5rbs.
“I am really happy that we have Marcus here. He knows the league, he’s proven scorer and playmaker which is exactly what we need right now.
I am looking forward to seeing the partnership between him Larry develop as I believe we have one of the most formidable back courts now in the BBL.”
“I am really happy to be back in the BBL and for the opportunity to play at Cheshire Phoenix. The club had trophy success last season and I always enjoyed playing against the club so hopefully we can build on last years success. “
The club are hopeful that Marcus will be cleared to play at the weekend by FIBA when we take on the Caledonia Gladiators at Ellesmere Port Sports Village this Sunday.
The club have parted ways with Jordan Strawberry and wish him all the best in the future.
