Worcester Wolves have brought in American forward, Elijah Burns.

From Troy, New York, the 6ft 8 forward attended Blair Academy before signing with Notre Dame.

In his senior year, Burns switched to Siena Saints where he averaged 14.3 points and 5.7 rebounds from 29 game starts.

Previously, Burns signed with Bulgarian NBL side BC Rilski Sportist who also compete in the FIBA Europe Cup.

Head coach Matt Newby said: “We welcome Elijah to the Wolf Pack and are happy to welcome an experienced and well-rounded young man who has a strong pedigree as basketball player and an appetite to impact our environment and culture and one who I feel, will contribute immediately to our teams defensive and offensive looks.

“Is has been a challenging few weeks and I feel that the team will benefit greatly from this strong addition to our rotation.”
