WORCESTER Wolves have signed talented American point guard Jordan Aaron.
Aaron has joined the club following an impressive season with Portuguese side CAB Madeira in 2014/15, where he averaged 16.7 points and 4.4 assists.
The versatile playmaker represented Milwaukee Panthers in US college basketball’s NCAA Division One, averaging 13.9 points whilst also being named ‘Horizon League MVP’ in 2013/14.
“I can’t wait to represent the Worcester Wolves. I’m thankful for the opportunity and I’m looking forward to meeting and working with everyone,” said the New York-born player.
Wolves head coach Paul James said: “I’m delighted we have been able to find a player that we feel will have a good and positive impact on the team going into the final stages of the season.
“I will be looking for Jordan to step up to the challenge and give us added leadership and production from the point guard position.”
Mick Donovan, Wolves managing director, said: “We have spent a great deal of time searching for the right type of player who can realistically bring something extra to our current team.
“This is a really exciting and challenging part of the season for everyone involved at the club and the arrival of Jordan clearly sends out a message to our fans that the season is still very much alive with the play-offs approaching.”
Jordan could make his Wolves debut at Leeds Force this Friday, but supporters will have to wait until Friday, March 18 to see him play at the University of Worcester Arena when Plymouth Raiders are the visitors.
Wolves lie third in the table, level with Leicester Riders, but having played more games than the teams around them.
