Cheshire Phoenix have made their first big signing of the summer with the addition of former Bristol Flyers and GB starting point guard Teddy Okereafor.
The 6’4″ Londoner has had successful stints in Estonia, Italy and Greece before returning to the BBL last season with Bristol.
“I am really excited and grateful for the opportunity to play for the Phoenix next season,” Okereafor said.
“I am looking forward to linking up with the team and hopefully competing at the top end of the league with the club. Hopefully the fans can return to the games and we can have a great year.”
Okereafor averaged 9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists this season.
“This is a great signing for our club,” Phoenix Head Coach Ben Thomas said.
“Teddy has been our number 1 target and this shows real intent from the organisation. We’ve got ourselves one of the best British guards and we are going to build a great team around him.
“Teddy has proved himself in the BBL with the Bristol Flyers but I know there’s more to come. After speaking to him he knows that he will be a huge part of this team and he’s ready to lead us!”
