After finishing college in 1996, Flournoy signed for British Basketball League team, the Birmingham Bullets making his debut against the Greater London Leopards on September 15, 1996. In his first season alone he clocked up 780 minutes averaging 8.50 points-per-game and 7.00 rebounds-per-game. Although his minutes were marginally shaved the following season, Fab still featured in all of the Bullets' 36 games, while helping his team to runners-up sport in the Championship and success in the Play-offs, beating London Towers in the final.

The following two seasons, saw his appearances drop, featuring in only 23 games in the 1999-2000 season, although he still featured in the Play-off final against Manchester Giants where he posted 12 points in the Bullets' 65-74 loss.
