Surrey Scorchers are adding American big Lacey James for the remainder of the campaign.

The 24-year-old joins Creon Raftopoulos’ side after graduating from Northern Illinois University in 2020.

Standing at 6’9, James has a reputation for being a presence in the paint on both ends of the floor, averaging nine points and seven rebounds per game during his senior year with the Huskies.

He also played alongside Bristol Flyers and GB international Teddy Okereafor as a freshman at Rider University.

He said: “I want to bring adversity on both ends of the floor from defence to offence.

“Starting on defence I want to use my speed against the bigger guys, and also on offence using my speed and outside shooting to space out the floor.

“I’ll be whatever the team needs me to be, but playing as a three or a four, getting some outside shots and rebounding.

“I want to help get some wins on the board and get some momentum going.”

Scorchers will host Solent Kestrels in the quarter-final of the BBL Trophy on Friday 19 at 6pm.
