Alex Legion
Fortituto Kontatto Bologna (Serie A2) landed 29-year old Jordanian guard Alex Legion (195-88, college: FIU, agency: Octagon Europe) from Berme Viola Basket Reggio Calabria. In 17 Serie A2 games in Italy he averaged impressive 19.9ppg, 4.9rpg, 2.6apg and 1.8spg this season.
The most of last season he spent at Arkadikos in Greek A1 where in 11 games he had 9.3ppg, 2.2rpg and 1.5apg. Legion also played earlier that season for El Jaysh in Qatari D1. In 8 games he recorded very remarkable stats: 21.5ppg, 5.6rpg, 2.5apg and 1.5spg.
Among other achievements his team made it to the Arab Club Championships Semifinals in 2015. Legion received also Eurobasket.com Italian LNP Gold All-Imports Team award in 2015.
He has a double citizenship as he also holds American passport.
He played at the Arab Club Championships Semifinals two years ago. His stats at that event were 8 games: 17.3ppg, 4.9rpg, 2.0apg, 1.9spg, FGP: 38.0%, 3PT: 41.9%, FT: 85.7%.
And here thanks to pro basketball Legion experienced life on three different continents. He is familiar with European, Asian and of course North American leagues. Legion has played previously professionally also in Hungary (PVSK Pannon), Lebanon (Sagesse) and Italy (Lighthouse Conad Trapani, Roseto and CZG Veroli).
He attended Florida International University until 2012 and it is his fifth season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Legion's outlook: Alex is an outstanding shooter who can also create his own shot off the dribble. He uses his strength to create space against defenders and is great 3 point shooter. He has played for top college coaches including Isiah Thomas this year. Alex is a scoring machine and very good all around player who is ready to compete at the highest level.
