Newcastle Eagles have prised Cortez Edwards away from Worcester.

The American guard, 23, averaged 13 points and six assists in his rookie campaign with the Wolves.

And Eagles head coach MacLeod said “I think Cortez is someone who fits our style of play perfectly.

“Athletic, exciting and excels at high tempo. A great addition who gives us an extremely dynamic back court.”

Edwards, a star collegiately at the University of Southern Mississippi, is set to slot beside Rahmon Fletcher in the backcourt on Tyneside.

“I bring a lot of energy and playmaking on both ends of the court. My goals for the season are to grow every aspect of my game and to win a Championship,” he said.

Cheshire Phoenix have re-signed British point guard Disraeli Lufadeju.
