Liam Davis will return from loan with the Reading Rockets and compete for the Bristol Flyers in the 2020-21 British Basketball League season.

The 6’9 “forward signed a two-year contract with the club last season and spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan with the Reading Rockets in the NBL Division One. Davis made 23 appearances for the Rockets last season, averaging 16.1 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.

Speaking to the club’s official YouTube channel, Davis said, “I’m so excited, it’s been a long time. I’ve heard so much about the Bristol Fanbase and can’t wait to get started.

“My time with Reading was a great experience, I learned a lot about myself on and off the pitch and coach Alan Keane really helped me improve my game.

“I tried to watch every Flyers game on YouTube last season and can’t wait to be with the team. They look hungry and they look like they want to compete and that’s the kind of guy I want to be with.

Davis joined the Ben-e-lot Flyers in Pointe à Pitre, Guadeloupe, after a successful four-year stint at Bethany College in NCAA Division Three.

The 24-year-old recorded 13.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game during his final year at Bethany, helping the Bisons advance to the PAC tournament final, while also winning the second-team All-PAC honors.

Flyers head coach Andreas Kapoulas added: “Liam has produced a strong season in NBL 1 and made great improvements on and off the pitch throughout the season. I would like to thank Reading Rockets owner Gary Johnson and head coach Alan Keane for supporting Liam in his first year of professional basketball in the UK.

“We’ve been in constant communication during the off-season to support his transition to BBL so he’s ready to go as soon as he arrives at Bristol.”
