It was a simple decision - Edozie

Daniel Edozie has revealed it didn’t take much convincing for him to sign a new one-year deal with the Bristol Flyers.

The 6ft8in forward has become the first player to commit to Andreas Kapoulas’ side for the 2018/19 season, having joined the club from Iowa State University in the summer of 2015.

Edozie has made 94 BBL Championship appearances during his three-year tenure at the club, scoring 758 points and grabbing 807 career rebounds.

The 25-year-old England international has his sights set on reaching new heights with the Flyers, with a shared ambition of winning the club’s first piece of silverware since joining the top flight in 2014.

"We’re looking to win a championship this year, whether that’s the BBL Trophy, the BBL Cup the league title or the play-offs,” Edozie told Bristol Flyers TV.

"The Flyers are improving every single year and to be a part of that growth has been tremendous.


"Being in Bristol has given me the opportunity to learn more about myself. To see the difference from when I first started at the club compared to last season has been great."

"Being selected to represent Team England at the Commonwealth Games was a great experience and it really helped me improve my game both physically and mentally.

"I’m very grateful for this opportunity and I feel like now is the time for us to really go out there and compete for a championship."

After suffering heartbreak in the BBL play-off semi-finals to Leicester Riders last season, Edozie was quick to reveal he’s looking to carry the club’s momentum into the 2018/19 season.

"I’m excited to get back on the court and play in front of the Flyers fans,” he added.

"I’m sure the fans are excited too and it’s great to know that you’re playing in front of a passionate fanbase - it can’t get much better than that.
