ULPH UP FOR GIANTS

Manchester Giants have re-signed British forward David Ulph.

The 27-year-old joined Giants part-way through last season and averaged eight points and eight rebounds in 12 games, making him the sixth biggest rebounder in the BBL, and third best rebounding Brit. He had four double-figure scoring games, and four with double-figure rebounding.

“He does exactly what we like our bigs to do, in that he is a rim-runner, extremely active on the offensive glass, and scores the ball¬†efficiently,” said head coach Danny Byrne. “He adds further variety to our frontcourt, alongside an old school post player like Breaon Brady and a dynamic stretch four like Lyle Hexom.

“Along with Jack Hudson, I said at the time we recruited them last year that I’d wanted them here for a long time, and see them as the future core of local talent at the club. They have played together for years and the chemistry between Jack and David was an offensive spark for us last season, and I’m confident that will continue.”

Worcester Wolves have landed American guard Mike Parks Jr who played two games for the (Toronto) Raptors 905 G-League team last season, his rookie year out of Memphis.
