Manchester Giants Announce Kofi Josephs
The Manchester Giants are proud to announce the signing of former Plymouth City Patriots guard, Great British international and certified walking bucket Kofi Josephs for the 2022/23 season.
Josephs was electric during his most recent tenure in the BBL at the Plymouth City Pavilions. In the 11 games he played for Plymouth during the 2021/22 season he averaged 20 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists on 42% from the field, 34% from beyond the arc and 84% from the line.
As well as being a fan favourite during his time in Plymouth, he also cemented his name in history as he recorded the highest total of points in a single game by a british player with 46 and became 9th in total points in a single game.Since his tenure with the Patriots, the 6”6 guard signed a professional deal in Saudi Arabia for Al Ahli in the top flight of Saudi Arabian basketball. In the 4 games he played there he averaged 16 points per game on 41/39/75 shooting splits.
As well as being a significant presence on court, Josephs is also an active presence on social media as well as he uses his platform to advocate for mental health through a variety of avenues such as “The Mental Health Charter for Basketball” and through his clothing brand “Why Not I”. Vince Macaulay said this about his latest addition:
"We’ve been short handed all season and injuries haven’t helped, with Nathan Robinson’s injury stretching even further we are delighted that Kofi has chosen to stay home in Manchester and suit up for us".
"His uptempo style will suit our style of play"
Kofi Josephs commented on the move:“It’s exciting times in Manchester, on and off the court. I’m happy to be apart of the new wave and looking forward to bringing my game to an already great team ahead of the most exciting part of the season”.
