Ex Lion Demond Watt signs in France
Sep 22, 2016
French NM1 team Angers BC 49 strengthened their roster with addition of 27-year old American forward Demond Watt (200cm/105kg). Last season he played at London Lions in British BBL league. In 28 games he recorded very impressive stats: 15.6ppg, 10.4rpg (#2 in the league) and 1.6apg. Great season indeed as he was voted to Eurobasket.com All-British BBL Honorable Mention.
Previous 2014-15 season Watt played at Cheshire Phoenix (also in British BBL) where in 39 games he was second best scorer with remarkable 18.8ppg and had 11.3rpg (#2 in the league), 1.6apg, 1.2spg and 1.2bpg. Watt helped them to make it to the semifinals. A very good season in his career as he was selected Eurobasket.com All-British BBL Forward of the Year and voted to 1st Team and voted to All-Imports Team.
Demond is quite experienced player - previously he had stints in Finland (UU-Korihait), Iceland (KR Reykjavik) and Sweden (Eco Orebro).
He attended Texas A&M - Corpus Christi until 2011 and it will be his sixth season as a professional player.
