Leicester Riders coach Rob Paternostro has re-signed veteran forward Robert Youngblood for the new BBL season.

The 42-year-old joined Leicester for a second spell in November and played a key part as they reached the play-offs.

Paternostro told BBC Radio Leicester he was thrilled to have Youngblood's experience in his ranks.

"Maybe he is the not the 40-minute guy he was but last year he gave us some really good minutes at some really important times," Paternostro said.
