Capers Back With the Bolts

October 2, 2019 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - London Lightning News Release

(LONDON, ON) The London Lightning are pleased to announce that Marcus Capers will be with the team for his 5th season with the London Lightning.

Marcus has become a mainstay with the Lightning over the past 4 seasons. He is known for his high flying dunks and huge blocks on defense but every year Marcus has improved his game on both ends of the floor, typically guarding the opposing team's best player and playing almost every position on the floor. We are very excited to see what "Cape" will do this year.

"We are very excited to have Marcus back for another year. Marcus has proven himself to be a winner and a great veteran leader. He brings passion and energy every day and is an example of the type of high character individual we are looking to build our roster around as we chase another NBLC championship in London. His versatility and athleticism makes him a fan favourite and a game changer on both ends of the floor."- Doug Plumb, Head Coach

"I am happy to stay in London for another year. I love the fans and the people here. We have some unfinished business with how we finished last season and I am looking forward to start building towards another championship." - Marcus Capers
