Bristol Flyers have signed American guard Bree Perine.

The 26-year-old arrives from Wisconsin Green Bay in time for Friday's BBL Cup semi-final against Glasgow.

Perine will provide cover for Doug Herring, who is out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on a knee injury.

"Dealing with the loss of Doug Herring through injury has been tough on the team," Flyers coach Andreas Kapoulas told the club website.

"The last couple of weeks all our players have stepped up their game to cover Doug's absence.

"Bree brings more depth and versatility to our team. He is a very talented player with valuable experience from his spells in Israel, Netherlands and Hungary.

"His size and height make him really tough to guard and I think he will fit very well to the Flyers family and what we want to achieve."
