New-look Wildcats sign American point guard
DURHAM WILDCATS have stepped up their preparations for the new BBL season with the signing of American point guard Devin Ginty.
Ginty has moved to the North-East after spending a season with Finnish Division One side Torpan Pojat, where he averaged 14.8 points a game during his 27 appearances.
The 24-year-old, who is a native of California and played college basketball for the San Diego Toreros, joins Joel Madourie, Paul Elderkin and veteran Ralph Bucci in a new-look Wildcats squad that is now being led by new head coach Lee Davie.
“I'm really excited about the upcoming season and getting the opportunity to play in England, I think it will be a great experience,” said Ginty. “The BBL seems like a league with high standards and I know that Durham Wildcats are a solid team.
“I think coach Davie has done a great job assembling a very well-rounded roster, so I am looking forward to doing whatever I can to help the team.
“The BBL is very competitive and I hope to help bring a competitive edge to the Wildcats. The biggest challenge coming from the US to the international pro leagues is the style of play, but I definitely enjoy the faster pace of the game and the shorter shot clock here in Europe.”
Durham will kick off their preparations for the new campaign with a pre-season friendly against a USA Select side at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre on Thursday, September 19 (7pm).
