Former NBL Canada Champion Signs with Magic

(Moncton, New Brunswick – October 4, 2017) The Magic have added another veteran to their training camp roster with the signing of Forward Jeremy Williams.

The 6'8" wingman from Memphis, Tennessee is no stranger to the National Basketball League of Canada, having played for three other teams in the league including the London Lightning, Island Storm and Saint John Riptide.   

Williams, who won an NBLC Championship with the Lightning in 2013, will be reunited with Head Coach Joe Salerno, as the two were part of an Island Storm team that made it to the NBL Canada Finals in 2014.

"Jwill brings a lot of post-season experience to our club, having played in two NBL Finals in his three seasons in the league. He is an extremely versatile player for his size, someone who gives the team a lot of flexibility in the way we can run our lineups and matchups. His ability to play 3-4 different positions on the court makes him a very valuable guy to have."

Williams, who played at the collegiate level at UTEP (University of Texas El Paso) has spent the previous two seasons playing in the NBA D-League (now known as the NBA G-League) for the Idaho Stampede and Salt Lake City Stars.

A versatile scorer and defender, Williams will feel right at home coming into training camp, not only having experience with Salerno, but also having played alongside veteran Point Guard Al Stewart in previous seasons.

The team's inaugural training camp is scheduled to kick off in early November at Crandall University.
