Flyers pen Liam Davis on two-year deal

Bristol Flyers have completed the signing of 6ft9in forward, Liam Davis on a two-year deal.

The club has invested in Davis’ long-term development with the Flyers and can confirm he will join Reading Rockets on a season-long loan for the duration of 2019/20 campaign. 

Davis joins the Flyers from Ben-e-lot in Pointe a Pitre, Guadeloupe, following a successful four-year spell at Bethany College in NCAA Division three.

The 23-year-old forward, who also holds a British passport, averaged 13.1 points 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game in his senior year at Bethany, helping the Bisons to the PAC tournament finals, whilst also earning All-PAC second team honours.

"I’m really excited, I spoke to Coach Kapoulas and he told me about the two-year plan that he wanted to put me on,” said Davis.

"He said that I’m going to be the first player that the organisation has ever signed on a two-year deal, so it’s a promising sign that he’s invested in my future and he wants me to improve my game at Reading this season.”

Speaking on Davis’ two-year deal, Coach Kapoulas said: "Signing Liam shows our vision and commitment to building a programme with a long term sustainable approach. 
"He is a young promising player who we believe can develop to a very good player in the BBL.

"It’s not something that you usually see in our league, but I felt it was important to invest in him and work with him on a two-year plan.

"It’s an exciting project and it’s great to be working in partnership with Reading Rockets, who are another forward-thinking club with vision and commitment to developing players.

"NBL Division one is a strong pathway for young players and we are looking forward to following Liam’s progress this season."
