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.
