Glasgow Rocks have signed American centre Meneptha Darden ahead of the new BBL season, which starts next month.
Darden, 24, stands at 6’9″ and led Rogers State University in both rebounds and blocked shots in his final year.
Rocks Head Coach Sterling Davis said: “Meneptha, I feel, is the big we have been wanting for a while now. He is very athletic, agile, and a really good shot blocker. I think what stood out about him is his intensity level when he plays the game. He is the guy who will do whatever needs done for his team to win and really seems to wear his heart on his sleeve.
“This guy is hungry to make a name for himself and I feel that he has not been given enough opportunity to prove his worth as yet. Hopefully he will come in and bring everything I envision of him to our team.”
Glasgow begin their campaign with trips to Newcastle and Durham on September 21st and 23rd.
