Phoenix Sign Alan Williams
South East Melbourne Phoenix is pleased to announce the third and final import signing of ex-NBA centre Alan Williams to a one-year deal.
The 203cm big man grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, playing his college ball at UC Santa Barbara, where he finished his career as the team's all-time leading rebounder and second all-time leading scorer.
Known for his rebounding and world-class touch around the rim, Williams saw the opportunity to play in Australia as a great move for his career.
"I always heard that Australia was an amazing place to visit, and it happens to be a perfect and upcoming basketball league. I just found it a good opportunity to further my career and touch an area of the globe that I haven't been to yet. I'm excited," Williams said about the decision to sign with the Phoenix.
