It’s official, Jordan Loyd has joined AS Monaco for the next two seasons.

After Elie Okobo yesterday, AS Monaco continues to formalize its workforce for the 2022-2023 financial year by announcing this time the signing of Jordan Loyd (1.93 m, 28 years old) for the next two seasons. The 2019 NBA champion with Toronto had been free since leaving Zénith Saint-Petersburg and therefore decided to return to service on the rock where he will find Sasa Obradovic, whom he rubbed shoulders with at Red Star Belgrade in 2020-2021. On the Monaco website, he spoke about his strong relationship with the Serbian coach:

“Sasa and I have a special relationship. […] I will always be grateful to Sasa, he trusted me a lot, he blessed me with many opportunities at Red Star and I told him. We spoke from time to time together, we took our respective news to know if we were well. He is a very passionate coach, who will make you work, make you push your limits, but encourage you constantly. Thanks to his confidence, I managed to surpass myself. Belgrade we have always been on the same wavelength. It’s perfect to be coached in these conditions, it can only work. So I’m very happy to be reunited with him again. This is one of the reasons for my signature. »

With Mike James, Elie Okobo and Jordan Loyd, the back line of the Roca Team is likely to do very badly next season, just like the rest of the workforce. Enough to allow AS Monaco to nurture high ambitions for the coming season. A challenge that the American full-back intends to take up:

“That’s why I came here. I’m used to being in teams with high ambitions. And we know that it is possible, that these are not empty words. I’m ready for this challenge, that’s what makes you love the high level basket. I am convinced that we can achieve these objectives, just like my teammates. »
