Nix set to shine with Force

Leeds Force are delighted to announce the signing of exciting American forward, Tavarion Nix.

He joins Force off the back of an impressive campaign in Thailand’s top league for Kabayan Pilipinas. The star forward posted an impressive 18.3 points, 15.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.4 blocks per game.

Head Coach Mika Turunen is pleased to have Nix signed up and said: “Tavarion is a great player, who the fans will love. As a coach, it is great to have such a versatile player who can play in numerous roles.

“We are bringing together a team that will make a challenge for the Play-Offs.”

Nix holds the impressive record of having averaged a double double in all three of his professional seasons. The player is thrilled to make the move to Leeds and added:  “I am really excited to be joining Leeds Force and I am looking forward to playing in the BBL.

“I have no doubt that Force will have a successful season.”

Nix joins Allie Fullah in what is set to be an exciting frontcourt at both ends of the floor. Force fans will get their first chance to see the team in action on Sunday 10th September as the team start their pre-season schedule with a West Yorkshire derby against Bradford Dragons.
