He said: "I'm excited to join coach Baker and coach Malpass, two great basketball minds, at a club with an incredible heritage that stretches back to the 90s heydays of British basketball.

We have had numerous basketball conversations and his hunger to know more about the club and to develop is what makes him invaluable to what we are trying to achieve this year."
