Jordan Heading signs with B2 team Nagasaki Velca

Jordan Heading’s next journey is in the B.League.

After a sensational season with T1 League’s Taichung, Heading is moving to the B.League. He has signed with Division 2 team Nagasaki.

The Velca made the announcement on Friday.

“I’m really happy that me and my family can be part of the Velca family,” said Heading.

“I’m grateful to the management for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I’ll do my best to deliver and I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates and the Velca fans!”

The 6-foot-2 shooter made his professional debut a year ago with the Suns.

He averaged 19.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.2 steals per contest, leading the Suns to the second seed.

However, Taichung fell to eventual champion Kaohsiung in the best-of-three finals, 3-0.

Nagasaki had only been in the B.League for two years.

Velca was promoted to Division II last May after topping the third division with a 45-3 record.

Heading will be facing Kobe Paras in the division. Paras signed with another promoted team Altiri Chiba last month.
