PUBLISHED: 17:00 22 August 2019
London Lions have added versatile guard and forward Dii'Jon Allen-Jordan to their squad ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The 25-year-old was with Cheshire Phoenix last season and 2016-17 season.
A native of Campbellsville, Ketucky, 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 per cent from the field whilst his 2.1 steals a game were good for second in the BBL.
Lion's boss, Vince Macaulay, said: "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.

"I know this will be my best season yet because I am more confident than I have ever been."
