London Lions have named Brett Burman as the club’s new General Manager.

Originally from Miami, Burman has no prior experience of European basketball but has spent the past two years as a scout for the Memphis Grizzlies, following time on the bench in the NBA G-League as an assistant with the Memphis Hustle.

Burman also had a spell on the Detroit Pistons staff under current Los Angeles Clippers President of Basketball Operations, Lawrence Frank, and was Director of Basketball Operations at both Indiana and Tulsa universities.

He said: “I feel extremely fortunate to have been given this opportunity to help build a team and establish a programme that checks all the boxes you look for, especially as a first-time General Manager. Stepping into a situation where I am backed by a strong ownership group and head coach, in a global city, competing in the BBL and FIBA – I couldn’t have asked for a better platform.

“I’ve been blessed to have worked with and learn under phenomenal coaches and general managers, whom I consider as mentors, throughout my career. My goal is to take a piece of what I learned from each of them and continue to build on the foundation that has been established with the London Lions.”
