Mark Lyons Joins VL Pesaro
VL Pesaro in Italy have announced the signing of Mark Lyons as the newest addition to their roster. Lyons joins the team after starting the season in Lebanon with Sporting Al Riyadi Beirut, where he averaged 17.7 points, 3.2 assists and 2.8 steals per game, his best numbers since suiting up for Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2017.
Lyons joins a Pesaro team that is sitting in the bottom half of the Lega Basket SerieA standings with a 6-13 record, and is middling in all offensive categories in league play and allowing a fourth-worst 93.1 points per game. This will be the first time the Arizona grad will play in Italy after stops in France, Belgium, Turkey, Israel, China and Russia.
