AKEEM SCOTT

LNBP newcomer Laguneros de Torreon added to their roster experienced 35-year old Jamaican ex-international guard Akeem Scott (185-82kg-83, college: High Point). He played last summer at Nauticos of Mazatlan (CIBACOPA). In 32 games he recorded very impressive stats: 19.7ppg, 5.0rpg, 6.0apg (top 3) and 1.9spg (in top 2). LNBP will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. Scott helped them to make it to the semifinals. Great season indeed as he was voted to Latinbasket.com All-Mexican CIBACOPA Honorable Mention. The last season he played at Saigon Heat in Vietnamese league where in 21 ASEAN League games he averaged remarkable 24.6ppg, 6.4rpg, 3.8apg and 2.9spg. A very good season in his career as he was voted to Asia-Basket.com All-ASEAN League Honorable Mention.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Scott's team was regular season runner-up in Chilean Liga Nacional Conferencia Centro in 2017. He was also voted Latinbasket.com All-Chilean Liga Nacional Defensive Player of the Year in 2017.
Scott represented Jamaica at the Centrobasket in San Juan (Puerto Rico) six years ago. His team won Bronze and his stats at that event were 6 games: 11.7ppg, 3.2rpg, 2.8apg, Steals-4 (2.2spg), FGP: 48.4%, 3PT: 35.5%, FT: 70.0%.
Scott is quite experienced player. Thanks to his pro career he managed to play on four different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America and of course North America) in eight different countries. Scott has played previously professionally also in Canada (London Lightning), Finland, Latvia (Ventspils), Montenegro (Mornar Bar), Uruguay (Bigua), Venezuela (Guaiqueries) and Chile (Universidad de Concepcion and AB Ancud).
It's very possible he may end his playing career at Laguneros.
Scott is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top summer league for players who want to play basketball overseas.
He attended High Point University until 2006 and it will be his 13th (hopefully lucky) (!!!) season as a professional player.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Fleet-footed point guard who can also score... equally adept at creating his own shot or setting the table for others.
Akeem is a tremendous competitor with great speed and a good basketball mind
