Surrey Scorchers are bringing back Lovell Cook for a second season.

The 30-year-old forward from New Orleans was the fourth leading scorer in the BBL last term, averaging 19 points per game.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to come back to the Scorchers, especially after how last season ended,” he said.

“I’m excited to have a new start, I feel like we made a lot of big strides last season. I feel like I fit into Creon’s system, I feel super comfortable. I can’t wait to get started.”

Head Coach Creon Raftopoulos added: “Once again this is an important signing for us. “When Lovell came in late last season he showed what he was capable of.

“I see him as a professional scorer, and I would expect that not to change.”

Elsewhere, Sheffield Sharks have re-signed homegrown product Nick Montgomery.

Wolves ride a Wave

Worcester Wolves have handed a deal to forward K.J Lawson from Tulane Green Wave.

The 24-year-old rookie bounced around during his college career, going from Memphis to Kansas to Tulane where he averaged 13 points and 5 rebounds in his final junior year.

Head Coach Matt Newby said: “It’s a significant signing and a decision not taking lightly. KJ can significantly influence us in a number of ways and genuinely compliments the perimeter and interior within our system. His pedigree is high order and I feel this young man’s skill set and application will help us become a contender.

“In following his NCAA career, you will see a player who has been a constant and consistent contributor, buying into his role year in year out.  I feel he will embrace his new responsibilities and seize the opportunity.”

Plymouth Raiders have returned Welsh forward Isaiah Walker – son of Lee, who was once coached by Paul James.
