Miracles sign returning fan favourite Sylvania Watkins

Released: September 25, 2015



The Moncton Miracles would like to welcome back fan favourite Sylvania "Sly" Watkins. The 30-year-old, Atlanta-native will be returning to Moncton for his fourth season with the organization. Watkins, a 6'8" Small Forward, suited up for the team in their first three seasons where he averaged 9 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game. 


“I’m just happy to see the fans excited that I’m returning”, said Watkins. “Im looking forward to seeing the great people of Moncton who [have] always treated me like family outside of basketball and of course I can’t wait to step on the floor and compete for a championship.” 


Watkins holds two regular season team records for most steals in a game with 7, and total minutes played with 54:00. In his second season with the Miracles, he ranked Number 1 in total blocks for the league, with 73 blocks.


Watkins will join the team for training camp in early December before the league tips off for its fifth season on December 26th.
