Jordan Williams has made the switch to join his hometown London Lions for the 2021-22 season off the back of an impressive season with Worcester Wolves.
The London-born forward averaged 13.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game in his second year with the Wolves, who recently announced their withdrawal from the BBL.
Williams becomes the third new addition for the Lions ahead of their upcoming campaign alongside American duo Julian Washburn and Isaiah Reece, who both have experience playing in the NBA G-League.
“It is our continual mission at the Lions to acquire and develop basketball’s most promising local and international talent, and Jordan Williams absolutely fits this category,” said Lions head coach, Vince Macaulay.
“It’s exciting to see his calibre of sportsmanship emerge from the local basketball scene. He’s coming in with a strong knowledge of the BBL and I’m very much looking forward to working with him this coming season.”
The Lions have been drawn to face Italian side Treviso in the Basketball Champions League qualifiers with Williams a strong addition as they look to assemble a competitive roster.
Williams also had multiple spells with Surrey Scorchers having first played in the BBL in the 2015-16 season, whilst also playing overseas in Belgium and Germany.
