Leicester Riders coach Rob Paternostro says American guard John Griffin made a big impression during his short spell in England and would be welcomed back.

Griffin has returned to the United States after an injury-hit spell and has been replaced by Yorick Williams.

Paternostro told BBC Radio Leicester: "The door is open. He's a great kid and not only a good player, but a good team player and he's always welcome back.

"We will definitely miss his shooting and his ability to handle the ball."
