London Set for New Season

A new season is about to tip off and London has a chance to become the first three-peat champions in league history.  The offseason has been relatively quiet as the front office weights paying up to keep the team intact versus waiting until this offseason when the contracts of franchise leader, Val Crumley, and star big man Jose Owens are up for renewal.  In the end the team chose to reserve their cap.  The results were the departures of Alain Lagon to division rivals, South Florida Sharks.  Truman Kaplan and Erik Hall soon followed Lagon to Florida and signed with the Tampa Bay Tritons.  Louie Benfield also departed for sunnier locale, moving all the way to San Diego to join the Storm.

 

“We’ll certainly missed those guys. Alain was instrumental in helping us win a title last season.  We wanted him back for another run but in the end he decided to take his talents to South Florida.  Truman, Louie and Erik all played quality minutes for us off the bench.  They’ll certainly get opportunities to play bigger roles with their new teams.  We miss them all the best.” said GM Lian

 

With the decision to be cost conscious the team filled the roster with 1-year deals.  Most notable is the return of defensive ace, Thomas Grundy.  Grundy would continue to be used at both Small Forward and Shooting Guard, though indications are he might start the season opener.  The Knights also signed several young guards, Ed Scott (25yr), Paul Medeiros (26yr), Irving Silas (24yr) and Tony Sokol (23yr), to help replenish the bench and offset the loss of Lagon.  Scott is a defensive minded point guard in the mold of Kaplan.  Silas and Sokol are the complete opposite and will mainly be task to pick up the scoring vacancy left by Lagon and Benfield.  Medeiros is a combo guard that will fill needs at both guard positions and used based on matchups.  Lastly, the team were able to bring back Henry Warnock. The young big man still has a way to go before he’s ready to play full time in the pros but the team liked what you displayed in limited minutes last season.

 

“We’re happy to have Thomas back.  We pride ourselves on defense and he’s been one of our best defenders.  Henry has looked great on the training squad and play some quality minutes for us.  With the new guys, myself and the rest of the coaching staff are going to need to find ways for them to fit in our system.  We can surely use the help and I know they’ll be great additions.” said Coach Bennett

 

In the draft the Knights drafted Tyson Zavala and Kevin Kellar.  Both are long defensive-minded perimeter players.  Preseason will decide if either one sticks with the club.  As has been the case for the past several seasons, the Knights will be sitting most of their veterans and letting the younger players shine in the preseason.  Expect lineup changes almost on a game by game basis.
