Video: Leslee Smith's First Bristol Flyers Interview

Leslee Smith spoke to Bristol Flyers TV for the first time after arriving in the UK earlier this week.

The 6ft 8in forward joins the Flyers from Olimpi Tbilisi in Georgia’s top flight, where he made 17 appearances last season, averaging 18.3 points and 11.6 rebounds per game.

The 25-year-old previously played NCAA Division One basketball at Nebraska in the ‘Big Ten’ conference.

“It feels really good to be here win Bristol,” Smith told Bristol Flyers TV.

“I’m very excited and I’ve been waiting for this moment all summer.”
