Rahmon Fletcher announced his retirement from professional basketball live on Sky Sports during Sunday’s BBL Playoffs final at The O2 Arena.
The American guard revealed his decision to former teammate Drew Lasker to bring to an end a pro career that began in 2011 and included eight seasons in the BBL.
Fletcher will go down as one of the BBL greats as a two-time league MVP having won nine titles in the BBL with Newcastle Eagles and made the Team of the Year on five occasions.
He was a three-time Finals MVP in the BBL Cup and also claimed the MVP award in the 2015 BBL Playoffs final to help the Eagles complete a clean sweep.
Fletcher joined Manchester Giants this past season and set the league record for assists in a season with 310 with almost 2500 in total across all BBL competitions.
The crafty lefty often proved unguardable in the BBL and had some great battles over the years with the likes of Conner Washington, Neil Watson and Justin Robinson.
