London Lightning Sign Xavier Moon
(LONDON, ON) The London Lightning are pleased to announce that we have re-signed point guard, Xavier Moon, for the 2019-20 season.
Fresh off a training camp stint with the Raptors905, Xavier Moon will make his return to the Forest City for the 2019-20 season. Moon put together an impressive first season for the Bolts last year averaging 13.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game in 40 appearances. Widely considered one of the league's fastest players, Xavier proved to be a great two-way player; finishing last season among the league leaders in total steals as well as steals per game.
"X has proven he's a dynamic player in our league and his experience with the 905 this preseason has helped elevate his game and confidence to another level. His quickness and ability to breakdown defenses is top tier.
We will look for him to take the next step this year with his game and helping our organization get back to the top of the NBLC." - Doug Plumb, Head Coach
"Extremely excited and blessed to be back in London for my second year! I'm ready to get to work and looking forward to the season!" - Xavier Moon
