JORDAN JETS IN
London Lions have added versatile guard/forward Dii'Jon Allen-Jordan to their squad ahead of the 2019-20 season.
The 25-year-old was with the Cheshire Phoenix last season as well as the 2016-17 season. A native of Plainsville New Jersey, Allen-Jordan played his college basketball at Francis Marion and Campbellsville before a stint in the NBA G-League with the LA D-Fenders.
Averaging 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists, Allen-Jordan led the phoenix in many games bringing high energy and great
defence to the cause. He hit 50% from the field whilst his 2.1 steals a game were good for second in the BBL.
Lions boss, Vince Macaulay had this to say about his newest recruit, “This was an important signing for us, the lad caused us numerous headaches last season with his energy and drive, I believe in playing tough and all out defence and he will enable us to get better in this area significantly. He will compliment what we do very nicely”.
After playing almost all positions with the Phoenix last term,
Allen-Jordan wants to build on his achievements. ”I feel extremely excited to be in London this season, I feel like this team is a good fit for me and the style that I like to play. I know this will be my best season yet because I am more confident than I have ever been”!
Allen-Jordan joins Brandon Peel and Jorge Romero on the squad, with more player announcements expected this week.
Fans will get to see the team for the first time on the 6th and 9th of September, Cal State Poly are the visitors to the Copper Box on the 6th whilst Euro-team, Bakken Bears, Danish Champions, will be next up at the University of East London on the 9th.
