Plymouth Raiders have signed 6'10" American centre Paul Williams for the upcoming BBL season.

Williams, 28, played for Plymouth's rivals Sheffield Sharks last season, where he scored 13.4 points and had 8.5 rebounds per game.

The St Bonaventure University graduate won the BBL Cup with the Sharks last season and has also played in Spain.

"He's a tough rebounder and I'm looking for big things from him this year, said Raiders head coach Gavin Love.

"I think he played a huge part in Sheffield's successes last year.

"He has a good array of post moves, footwork, he's a very underrated passer with a lot of experience in the game."

Williams' signing leaves one spot left on the Raiders roster for a non-EU player, with the club expected to make an announcement about who will fill it next week.
