Worcester Wolves have signed Lithuanian centre Arturas Masiulis ahead of their 2012/13 BBL campaign.
The 6ft 11in player is a highly experienced 32-year old who knows Wolves’ director of basketball Paul James from their time at Guildford Heat together.
James was delighted to have attracted a high calibre player to the Wolves.
He said: “Arturas came over to Guildford when he played for Siauliai, and gave my guys all sorts of matchup problems. Aside from that, he has played at a high level in European competitions throughout his career.
“It’s great that the success that we are having at the Wolves is now attracting this calibre of player to the city.”
Wolves will open the new season against Durham Wildcats on Saturday 22 September.
