DERRELL NELSON

Derrell is an explosive combo guard who creates instant offense. He is
an outside shooter with ball handling skills and can attack the basket
off the dribble. Nelson can play the 1 or 2 position in any offense and
shoots three pointers at a high FG%. Last season he played for the
Rochester Razorsharks in the Premier Basketball League. Derrell is a
selfless leader who understands the importance of getting his
teammates involved. He is also a strong rebounder who can crash
the boards based on team needs and situations. He plays the game
with passion using his experience from USA and Europe. Derrell is an
exceptional teammate who enhances a “winning” culture while
delivering an element of toughness with a championship mindset.

Last season Derrell played for the Rochester Razorsharks in the PBL.
The team got off to an 8-0 start but the season was cut short due to
the pandemic. In college he averaged 21.5 PPG for Cardiff University.
Derrell has played against competition in Spain, Germany, and UK. In
2018 he was selected as a top 5 player at the Germany Slammers
combine with talent from the NCAA and European leagues.
