Plymouth Raiders signed point guard Rickey McGill from Panionios.

The American made his pro debut for last season in Greece’s top tier, HEBA A1, after playing collegiately at Iona.
Contributing on average eight points per game, three rebounds and four assists, McGill has demonstrated his talents in one of Europe’s toughest leagues and is raring to go in the BBL.
During Summer 2019, the 23-year-old joined NBA side Sacramento Kings for their pre-draft workouts where he subsequently caught the eye of European teams.
“I’m super excited to have signed for the Raiders and can’t wait to get on the court and represent the city of Plymouth,” said McGill.
“Coach has told me great things about the fans and city, so I am looking forward to hopefully entertaining them and bringing success to this club. I’m grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait to get started.”
McGill will feature in a backcourt along side Andrew Lawrence with Will Neighbour also in situ,
Raiders head coach Paul James said: “I am very happy with the signing of Rickey McGill. He is a guard who comes to us having played his rookie season for Panionios Athens in the very tough Greek A1 league. He is a tremendously quick and dynamic player who can score in many ways as well as being a great facilitator of the ball.
“He plays with great intelligence and attitude and we are very pleased to have been able to sign him for the coming season. He is a great addition to our team and we’re sure he will excel and contribute greatly to our season.”

Worcester Wolves have added to their back court ahead of the new season with the signing of guard Micah Elan.

The 6 ft 4 San Francisco native joins off the back of his senior year playing for Pomona-Pitzer.
