Connor Washington becomes the Leicester Riders second signing of 2012, following the arrival of former Rider, Yorrick Williams.
Washington has previous BBL experience having been a part of the Milton Keynes Lions during the 2010/11 season before moving to America to play Division II basketball.
Riders head coach Rob Paternostro acknowledges that the situation could work out well for both player and club having recently lost guards John Griffin and Flinder Boyd earlier this year.
“He (Washington) was looking for a place to play having come back from the States, he’s practised with us this week and we certainly liked what we saw when we played against him last year. And so far he’s fit in well with the guys and when you’re a young player you need to be playing,”
“It could be a good opportunity for both.”
The Leicester Riders face the Sheffield Sharks in the BBL with tip-off at the John Sandford Sports Centre coming at 7:30pm.
